The Chronicle of Georgia: A Hidden Gem with Breathtaking Views

 The Chronicle of Georgia: A Hidden Gem with Breathtaking Views

While we were in Georgia, we visited many beautiful and historic sites such as Narikala Fortress, Svetitskhoveli Cathedral and the picturesque and exciting tour to Kazbegi and Gudauri. Basically, as much as can be packed into a three to four day trip. The one place that came as a surprise was the Chronicle of Georgia. It somehow does not appear in most of the recommended places to visit in Georgia and is often overlooked as a sightseeing attraction. This place was so far down on our sightseeing list that we practically stopped by the monument on our way to the airport on the final day of our trip. We were very glad we did, because it was one of the highlights of our trip. It's a hidden gem, a very underrated tourist attraction and one we highly recommend - a place that you should put on your itinerary for your next trip to Georgia.

We were astonished when we arrived at the location, which was quite distant from downtown. We admired the massive pillars with wonderfully constructed sculpits on them as we got closer.

Despite the fact that the memorial is still unfinished, we barely noticed it. This memorial stands as proof of Georgia’s claim to being the world's second oldest Christian nation after Armenia.

The pillars in the square are each 30 meters high and made to look like they're planted firmly into place. They represent Georgia's 3,000 year old history with an artistic flourish

The sculptures of Georgia are not just stone monuments. They also tell the interesting history from early times to modern day, with drawings on some famous kings and people who played significant roles in our country's development such as Saint Nino - one that’s cherished by Georgians alike for its significance during medieval times.

Not only will you be overwhelmed by the breathtaking views of Pillars, but it's surrounded by gorgeous scenery that is hard to come across. If this location doesn't make you stop and stare with its beauty, take some photos!
