Poka Monastery


On the shores of Paravani Lake there is a historical site where St. Nino was on a mission to bring Christianity to Georgia, and she rested here after arriving from Javakheti. It was at this spot in 1989 that a monastery was erected, shortly followed by a nunnery in 1992. For those who want to see festivities in her honor, go to St. Nino’s feast day, celebrated on June 1. Visitors can also explore the village ruins from pre and early feudal times or purchase cloisonne enamel works of art, cheese, artisan jams, honey, and porcelain that are cultivated and manufactured at the nunnery.
