As a part of Mtskheta city, Jvari (Holy Cross) monastery is as well included in the List of UNESCO's monuments. It was built in the first half of the 7th century in the very same place, where the preacher of Christianity Saint Virgin Nune (Nino) erected a cross. The scenery is described in Lermontov's poem "Mtsyri". The monastery is located on a steep cliff of 150 m high above the surrounding area. A wonderful view opens from here to Mtskheta city – to the mix-point of Kura and Aragvi rivers. Jvari monastery is a building with a square-formed cross plan, its edges are decorated with semicircular absids. The monastery ends up with a drum, having 8 round altars. The building was restored in 2007.
