- Koroghli Fortress (also known as Agarani or Azeuli Fortress, as well) – is located in a small town Kojori, in the south-west of Tbilisi, at 1250 meters above sea level and offers breathtaking views of Krami and Algeti river gorges. The earliest layers of the stronghold date back to the 2nd half of the 11th century. The fortress has been restored several times, and the pieces of wall that remain standing to belong to the 16-18th centuries. According to some historians, Queen Tamar died there.

The church has a remarkable cross-in-square design with a dome on top of it, built in the ‘Golden Age’ of the Kingdom of Georgia, at the turn of the 11th and 12th centuries. The Betania Monastery is famous for the valuable frescoes and portraits of 3 Georgian monarchs: George III, his daughter Queen Tamar, and the son of the later George IV.
