Photographer's Note

Mtskheta is a city in Georgia, located at the confluence of the Kura and Aragvi rivers, it is one of the oldest cities in Georgia. The Historic Monuments of Mtsjeta were included by UNESCO in the list of World Heritage Sites in 1994.

The set of historic churches of what was the former capital of the ancient kingdom of Kurtchistan (now Georgia), between the 3rd centuries BC. C. and V d. C., constitutes a good example of medieval architecture in the Caucasus and an exceptional testimony about the high degree of artistic development of this kingdom. In Mtsjeta, Georgians accepted Christianity in 317 and it is still the seat of the Georgian Orthodox and Apostolic Church.

They say that one of Noah's descendants, Mshet, chose the place where Mtskheta (Mtsjeta) currently stands as his new home. He really liked the site, especially for its location just 240 km from Mount Ararat. Furthermore, he felt that this place possessed great spirituality and decided to found a city. Until now Mtskheta is the seat of the Georgian Orthodox and Apostolic Church.

Mtskheta es una ciudad de Georgia, ubicada en la confluencia de los r甐s Kura y Aragvi, se trata de una de las ciudades m嫳 antiguas de Georgia. Los Monumentos hist鏎icos de Mtsjeta fueron incluidos por la Unesco en la lista del Patrimonio de la Humanidad en 1994.

El conjunto de iglesias hist鏎icas de la que fuera antigua capital del antiquisimo reino de Kurtchistan (hoy Georgia), entre los siglos III a. C. y V d. C., constituye un buen ejemplo de arquitectura medieval en el C嫠caso y un testimonio excepcional sobre el alto grado de desarrollo art疄tico de este reino. En Mtsjeta, los georgianos aceptaron el cristianismo en 317 y an es sede de la Iglesia ortodoxa y apost鏊ica georgiana.

Dicen que uno de los descendientes de No, Mshet, eligi el lugar donde actualmente est Mtskheta (Mtsjeta) como su nueva casa. Le gust mucho el sitio, sobre todo por su ubicaci鏮 a solo 240 km del monte Ararat. Adem嫳, sinti que este lugar pose燰 una gran espiritualidad y decidi fundar una ciudad. Hasta ahora Mtskheta es cede de la iglesia ortodoxa y apost鏊ica georgiana.
