The Mtatsminda Pantheon of Writers and Public Figures (Georgian: მთაწმინდის მწერალთა და საზოგადო მოღვაწეთა პანთეონი, mtats'mindis mts'eralta da sazogado moghvats'eta p'anteoni) is a necropolis in Tbilisi, Georgia, where some of the most prominent writers, artists, scholars, and national heroes of Georgia are buried. It is located in the churchyard around St David’s Church "Mamadaviti" on the slope of Mount Mtatsminda (Geo. მთაწმინდა, meaning the Holy Mountain) and was officially established in 1929. Atop the mountain is Mtatsminda Park, an amusement park owned by the municipality of Tbilisi.
The first celebrities to be buried at this place were the Russian writer Alexander Griboyedov (1795–1829) and his Georgian wife Nino Chavchavadze (1812–1857). The Pantheon was officially opened in 1929 to mark the centenary of Griboyedov's death during his time as the Russian ambassador. The Pantheon was conceived of as a symbol of collective identity of Georgia. Since then, several illustrious Georgians have been buried or reburied there. The Pantheon is administered by the Government of Tbilisi and is frequented by locals as well as the city’s visitors.

Надо увидеть своими глазами и пройтись тут, описывать с одной стороны нечего, с другой - непросто :)

Не передаваемый красивое место. Картины в храме, пантеон, часовня, вид на Тбилиси ...

Замечательное и спокойное место утром. Из минусов: утомительный подъем, если пешком и толпы туристов начиная с 10-11часов утра.

This is notable place with graves of famous people like Griboedov or Stalin's mother Ekaterine Jughashvili and other. Here you can feel peace and see bautiful panoramic views of the city, read book or simply take a break on the bench after going down by feet from Mtatsminda Park or upwards from Rustaveli Avenue. Optionally you can take a funicular and disembark at Mtatsminda Pantheon Station on a halfway to the amusement park. Please don't mix it with Mtatsminda Amusement Park, it is different place!

Old church with some notables buried in the small cemetery including Stalin's mother
