In the very center of the city right across the main street of Tbilisi – Rustavi towers the Holy mountain – Mount Mtatsminda or David Mountain named in the honor of St. David Garedzhi who lived as a recluse in a cave on one of its slopes. From the mountain you will see the panorama of entire Tbilisi which seems to fit your palm.

The wide mountain plateau is occupied by the television tower (276m), a surprisingly beautiful building of the top station of cable car, St. David Church (the 19 th century) and a small cemetery – the Pantheon of famous Georgians where A.Griboedov, the Russian poet, his wife Nina Chavchavadze, Elijah Chavchavadze, Nikoloz Baratashvili, Acacias Tsereteli, Sergo Zakariadze and others are buried.

The Holy Mountain is also known for Narikala, the most ancient fortress in Tbilisi
