საფარის მონასტერი Монастырь Сафара Sapara Monastery Georgia 4K aerial video footage DJI Inspire 1 Samtskhe-Javakheti Georgia Rivalling Vardzia as one of the most beautiful places to visit in the region (and receiving just a fraction of its visitors), Sapara Monastery has a dramatic position clinging to the edge of a cliff. It has existed from at least the 9th century, and has numbered among its monks many important figures in Georgian ecclesiastical history.The monastery complex consists of numerous buildings. The most striking is the domed Church of St. Saba, built in the late 13th and early 14th centuries. The belltower and the ruins of the palace also dale from that period. The oldest structure is the aisleless church attached to the main Church of Si. Saba in the southwest. This hall church is dedicated to the Assumption of the Mother of God. The facade is decorated with finely carved rebels. Note the head of a bull on the top left side of the entrance from the porch. Legend has it that at the time of the building of the church a bull helped to haul stones from the mountain to the site. Just as the work was finished the bull was killed and eaten by a bear.
