[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Metekhi is a historic district of Tbilisi, Georgia, located on the elevated cliff that overlooks the Mtkvari river.
The district was one of the earliest inhabited areas on the city’s territory. According to traditional accounts, King Vakhtang I Gorgaslan erected here a church and a fort which served also as a king’s residence; hence comes the name Metekhi which dates back to the 12th century and literally means “the area around the palace”.
