Rock Monastery Chelter-Coba

Posted on October 5, 2011 by

Chelter-Coba is a rock-cut monastery. It was founded in the 8th-9th centuries and had existed until the Turkish invasion in 1475. It has 22 caves of different sizes, which used to be monastic cells, refectories, storages, a common refectory, and a temple.

On the way to the monastery.

Driving past Kachi-Kalion caves.

The rocks are beautiful!

Believe it or not, people used to live here. There were several temples on the slope of the hill.

Fresh air, a mountain road, 40 degrees Celsius…

Here it is!

If you turn right, you’ll find a spring and a phiale.

A bell gable.
