Uplistsikhe

Uplistsikhe. The city emerged in the late II - early I millennium BC. E., survived several ups and downs, was finally abandoned in the XIX century and is, therefore, a multi-layered archaeological site, one of the most important monuments of Georgian culture. The uniqueness of the monument lies in the fact that, thanks to its structure, it retains the remains of architectural and religious buildings built over several millennia. In the heyday Uplistsikhe included more than 700 caves and cave structures, of which only 150 have survived to this day .. It is a treasure of the Georgian people, a brilliant monument, the material culture of Georgians, a page written in stone of history.
