Why are you reporting this puzzle?

The Katskhi pillar you see in Today’s Puzzle is located in the village of Katskhi in the western Georgian region Imereti.

The pillar is a natural limestone monolith—40 metres high overlooking a small river valley. And on top (yes, we were getting to that part ☺), you see a rebuilt ancient monastery that dates back to the 9th or 10th century.

According to Wikipedia, the rock remained unclimbed by researchers until 1944 and was only more systematically researched from 1999 to 2009.

The monastery is inhabited by the monk Maxim Qavtaradze and has been so for more than 20 years. Imagine that... In collaboration with locals and the Georgian government, Qavtaradze has restored the 1200-year-old monastic chapel on top of the rock.

You can read more about the history of and present life surrounding the Katskhi pillar here.

Hodně zajímavý přírodní útvar.
Nepřipomíná nám tak trochu našeho starého známého rudolfinského pražského Golema?

Must have been fun (not) building the monastery in the first place.

Amazing history. Thank you for sharing. :)
