IMG_0163_GEORGIA. Dodo Gareja. 2011. Monks meeting friends. The monks live in a rock-hewn monastery complex (Lavra in Georgian) on the slopes of Mount Gareja, in the south of Kakheti, about 60-70 km south-east of the capital Tbilisi, near the border with Azerbaijan. The complex includes a dozen cells and a refectory hollowed out of the rock face. The monastery was founded in the sixth century by the Syrian monk Dodo, one of the 13 Syrian Fathers who founded monasteries in the regions of Kartli and Kakheti.
