Ukimerioni Hill

Since the old times, the hill located north of Kutaisi, where Bagrati Cathedral is situated, is called either Ukimerioni or Ukhamerioni. Some researchers believe that the name comes from a Greek word “khima” (winter). Others think that it takes its origin from a Georgian word “okhua”, from which derive two Georgian words: Saokhi (“Place for church”) and Saokhebeli (“God’s Prayer”).
