Georgian Churches & Monasteries: A Photo Gallery

The country of Georgia was one of the first in the world to adopt Christianity as a national religion and its people since then have maintained their religious piousness.  Not surprisingly, churches and monasteries dot every town and city in the Georgian map, many of them dating back to the medieval ages.

I was privileged to visit Georgia in late 2010 and early 2011 and photograph some of its most historic churches and monasteries.  The photos I took of these religious structures were posted in  a series of 6 posts in October last year.  Below is a gallery of some of the photos in these posts (the links to the actual posts are provided after the gallery).
