Tmogvi Fortress is situated in Aspindza Municipality. Although the date of construction is not known, its existence is mentioned in Historical Chronicles as early 914 AD. The Fortress is erected on steep cliff on the bank of the Mtkvari River at a height of 150 m from the level of the river. In XI-XII cc. the Fortress used to be a well-developed city-fortress. The constructions have skillfully utilized all advantages of the contrasting relief. Vertical tunnel, cut through rocks leads to the banks of the Mtkvari River, via which the citadel was supplied with water. Several construction layers are distinguishable both in the wall stonework and the settlement remains scattered all around the fortress.
