35.00 ₾ per person
Metekhi - a historical district on the left bank of the river Mtkvari on a rocky outcrop in Avlabari, Tbilisi. It was the earliest settlement in the city. According to traditional beliefs, King Vakhtang I Gorgasali built a church (Metekhi Church of the Nativity of the Mother of God) and a fortress here, which also served as the king's residence.
In this place, in the V century St. Shushanik was tortured to death. According to legend, the Metekhi rock was supposed to be the place of torture of St. Abo Tfileli (VIII century), who is the patron saint of Tbilisi.
It is connected to the opposite bank of the Mtkvari near Metekhi by a reinforced concrete bridge, which was built in 1951 on the site of two old bridges.
