BAIEBI ROCK-CUT FORTRESS
The Baiebi rock-cut fortress stands on a cliff
west of the village of Tskordza and dates back
to XII_ XIII centuries. On the Akhaltsikhe-Aspindza
motorway, before reaching the fi rst
bridge aft er Akhaltsikhe, there is a turning to
the right leading through the Uraveli gorge.
After reaching Tskordza village the road continues
in a westward direction to the Baiebi
fortress. According to legend it was built by
the Baiashvili family, from which the name
"Baiebi" originates. The complex served as a
shelter (sakhizari) made up of a stronghold
protected with a wall that could be entered
only through a small stone gate. Two small
hall-churches, which look as if they protrude
from the rock, have been preserved inside the
stronghold. Near the church is a stone gate
leading to a darani.
