Pictures photos images of the historic Kintsvisi Monastery Georgian Orthodox complex, Shida Kartli, Georgia (country). Kintsvisi Monastery is a medieval Georgian Orthodox monastery in the Shida Kartli region, eastern Georgia. The central (main) central church dedicated to St Nicholas is thought to date to the early 13th century, in what is generally regarded as the Georgian Golden Age. Kintsvisi Monastery is the best preserved example of Georgian architecture of the 12th and 15th centuries. The monastery complex includes the church of St Nicholas and the temple of the Virgin, a small church of St George, bell tower and wall. The church of St Nicholas was built of Georgian brick. Kintsvisi’s painting is unique using bright colours mainly of pale green, gold and reddish hues against a background of sky blue. The church of the Virgin Mary also contains an enthroned Hodegetria with a Communion of the Apostles in its apse. In 2001 the International Centre for the Arts completed conservation of the Church of St Nicholas and today it is part of an active Georgian Orthodox Monastery.
