While seeing lush green hillocks and gushing waterfalls can be quite pleasant, there is something about rugged structures that makes them extremely alluring. One such rugged spectacle is the David Gareja monastery complex located in Georgias Kakheti region. It houses 19 medieval cave monasteries and several churches, chapels, and hundreds of murals and ancient rock paintings, making it a delight for history buffs. It actually forms Georgias border with Azerbaijan.
