|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”.
