Davit Gareja Caves, Georgia

High in the cliffs of eastern Georgia’s rugged and remote border with Azerbaijan, Davit Gareja is a complex of 19 medieval cave monasteries. Considered masterpieces of Georgian art, the caves once housed nearly 5,000 monk cells. One cave is still functioning as a monastery, and monks can sometimes be heard chanting in the eerie silence of the deserted steppe.
