Uplistsikhe which means “The Fortress of the Lord”  is a  city which is widely remembered by the tourists because of their caves. Before the arrival of Christianity, this place was previously used by pagans for worship back in the ancient times.

Uplistsikhe is almost one and half hour drive from Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi.  Since we had a driver who brought us to places, commuting was not really an issue for us, but in case you will commute, there is a bus from Gori  which will  cost you GEL 10. Our trip was not the usual type of arrangement with travel agencies where you will only have a very limited time in a place. Ours was not the usual, we can stay longer whenever we want  and leave whenever we want.

A certain part of the road was a bit dusty but you will be relieved upon seeing the foot of this fortress surrounded by the Mtkvari river. Once you reached the entrance of the fortress, they will charge you GEL 3.00 and you are free to conquer the caves above. You have to be in your good walking shoes as you will be walking and climbing  on  steep slopes and open pits. The rocks could also be slippery and you have nothing to grab a hold of. Above is a large complex of caves and splendid carved ceilings. I am not sure if these caves existed naturally or these were previously carved during the ancient times, but one things is sure, I was astounded by its beauty. Nature has its own way of capturing the human heart.

The exhilarating feeling above, overlooking the beautiful river is exceptional. The wonder of God in His creation is amazingly breathtaking and that wonder has co-existed in Georgia  with  its gift of nature. With the elevated feeling at the top, you cannot help but stand in awe on Gods mighty hand and marvel with His goodness.

 When in Georgia, do not afford to miss these caves, they are a must-see!

Colossians 1:16-17 

For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
