Interesting piece on Georgian Monasteries
« on: April 24, 2010, 11:09:55 AM »
"Vardzia, Georgia (CNN) -- In an isolated mountain valley on the southern edge of the former Soviet Union stands a cliff honey-combed with caves.

This is Vardzia -- a cave monastery built in the 12th century by Georgian kings and queens.."
