Ubisa Monastery

The main buildings of the Ubisa monastery complex are:
1. The Church of St. George (IX century)
2. Two-storied Tower, built in year of 1141.  (Mesvete residence)
3. Remains of old wall (XII century)
4. Belfry and various utility buildings.

In the monastery, for centuries books were copied, there were schools of embossed mural and painting. The main attraction of the ensemble is the interior painting of the church of St. George, which probably is made by Gerasim, ​​ a disciple of the great Georgian artist Damian, living XIV century.
Paintings are pretty well kept. In the wall paintings there is a new, more realistic direction. Decision of images of saints on the frescoes dominated life style, landscape looks more like reality. The temple provides compositions of all church festivals: the Annunciation, Palm Week, the Crucifixion, Easter, Baptism, the Last Supper, and Communion.
Near the temple are kept 1600-3200 liter jugs in which residents hold water and wine.
