This is a popular tourist attraction and pilgrimage location because it is here that Saint Nino, 4th century evangelist of Georgians, relic’s are shrined. I didn’t wear my papakha hat here – it didn’t feel right as this is such an important religious location. I wore my Prague scarf that swallows the head and pom pom hat.

Old Church – Just like our visit to the Ananuri Fortress, I was not allowed to take pictures of the interior of the church and had to wear a scarf around my waist. My Prague pom pom hat was okay as a cover. Here I was able to pray at the tomb of St. Nino.
I’ve uploaded a photo from the internet to show you the church’s beautiful interior.

Newer church still under construction.
Nunnery, with one of the nuns sweeping the walkway.
It was fun having Dachi always willing to take my picture. I’m so used to taking the pictures or taking selfies.
Next stop….the town of Signagi!
