Here, one can find a citadel, as well as public and religious buildings. Among the religious buildings of special interest is Dmanisi Sion (VI c.). Along with a medieval stratum, in Dmanisi, specialists discovered a geological stratum dated back to 1, 8 billion years ago, with numerous hominids and fossilized animals.
