Dedoplistskaro Town in Kakheti Region has a long and fascinating history. The name of the place means “Queen’s spring” in Georgian. According to legend, Georgia’s favourite Queen Tamar, drank the water from the spring and liked it so much that she ordered the water to be piped to Khornabuji Fortress. A museum of local lore was opened in the city in 1975, and today houses more than 12,000 unique objects depicting the long history of the region.
