Katskhi Pillar
Katskhi Pillar
The Katskhi pillar is a natural limestone monolith located at the village of Katskhi in western Georgian region of Imereti, near the town of Chiatura. It is approximately 40 metres (130 ft) high, and overlooks the small river valley of Katskhura, a right affluent of the Q'virila. In historical records, the Katskhi pillar is first mentioned by the 18th-century Georgian scholar Prince Vakhushti, who reports in his Geographic Description of the Kingdom of Georgia: "There is a rock within the ravine standing like a pillar, considerably high. There is a small church on the top of the rock, but nobody is able to ascend it; nor know they how to do that."

What else is also yours you idiot moron? It is written in Georgian lrtetes on the restaurant and shows the clear picture of that supposedly statue of Botticelli standing´╗┐ outside of that restaurant!! Statue of Botticelli or not nobody talks about that here in first place and if your people sold it and we use it to just decorate outside of our restaurant where we gather, eat and enjoy our selves don't hate!! So, before you say anything stupid like that check your stupidity first

very true! its not like Georgians dont like italian cinuse but i dont think its good idea to open italian restaurant it georgia because it will work in beginning really well because people will come just to try something new but you will not have many regular costumers because next time they will go and eat khinkali. to open in moscow u made great choice because most russians like to go eat non russian food plus many´╗┐ tourists around ps i like italian dishes but I LOVE KHINKALI
