This is a very small fort on top of hill. As going to this place is worth driving but the fort is not worth going. The drive to this place is beautiful as it is a hilly drive. This place is deserted as you see no one and not even any piece of information

No proper information is provided about the fortress. For barbecue,picnic in a small group is good place to visit. Nowhere water, bring your water also) The view from the top is attractive. The church is on top, not maintained, seems nobody is taking care. Some place is very dangerous, no sign boards about. Children must be under observation, better no... More

Note there are two paths to the top, one is like a goat track straight up, and the other is a wider road/path (to the right from the parking area). Fortress is interesting. Caretaker lives up there. Some small but overgrown gardens. Good view. Like a lot of Georgia, there are little safety precautions so don't get too adventurous.

It looks great from below, but its not such an interesting place to visit unless you have a fascination for partially reconstructed fortresses. Nice, but not essential viewing.

It's near main road. Nature and forest with hills around the Fortress are really picturesque.We enjoyed our short stop, better to read some information about place in advance. We were traveling by car to Telavi, so we were pleased to explore old castle and little church on our way.

Since it is near main road, the fortress is easy accessible by car. Fortress is slightly overgrown with trees and has a excellent view on nearby valley. The information table is in georgean, russian and english language. There is a chapel in one of the fortress rooms with pictures and religious symbols. In generally, an excellent place to visit.

Ujarmas Tsikhe was built by King Gorgasal (who founded Tbilisi) in the 6th century. It is on the "new road" between Tbilisi and Telavi, about 1 hour from each of those cities. Pull into the parking area and climb the hill to the fortress. If you like history and beautiful scenery, you will not be disappointed. The fortress sits on... More

I was surprised to see Ujarma fortress listed under Tbilisi attractions, because it’s actually situated in about 45km from Tbilisi, on the hill by Tbilisi-Telavi highway running towards Gombori Pass. Ujarma has a beneficial sitting atop of the hill above the Iori River valley. The views over the valley and the countryside were probably less scenic in winter, when we... More
