Samtavro Monastery Reviews & Ratings

  • Good place to know about history and nice museum there. And this is run by women. Went from tbilisi to see this and enjoyed my trip. There is open area outside. The walls and the overall construction is amazing. Great attention to detail is given. Amazing

  • Good place to visit. Close to Tbilisi and has historical value.

  • Must visit place in Georgia. God bless Georgia

  • Beautifully preserved convent with a great history. The icon of the Virgin Mary attracts a lot of people so it tends to be crowded with people making wishes and leaving presents for her after their wishes are granted.

  • It's nice, although there's not that much to see. There's also a little museum with a nun telling you the story about the artefacts gathered there.
