richly decorated dome of the Church of Saint George, Gelati Monastery

Next to the main church of the Gelati Monastery, north of Kutaisi in Georgia (and on our way to Svaneti), the 10th C Church of the Blessed Virgin, is the Church of Saint George, which was probably built in the 13th C. Like the main church, this one, too, is richly decorated with frescoes, of which I have included a few examples in this entry.
