Founded in 1981, it became the first Georgian puppet theater. The building is decorated with a magnificent clock tower which features a performance of figurines everyday at 12:00. Address: 13 Shavteli Street

I did not arrive in time for the puppet show, but the falling tower is quite nice. The area is always crowded.

The woman that sells the tickets is really rude. She didn't want to give us any information. It was really uncomfortable.

We reached there at 12:00pm, just on time to watch the small window opens at the top of tower and an Angel comes out to strike the bell. Then below the clock, a screen opens and "the circle of life puppet show" starts.
