On August 12, annual public festival Didgoroba is celebrated at Didgori valley, Tetritskharo Municipality. The Battle of Didgori was fought between the armies of the Kingdom of Georgia and the Great Seljuq Empire at the place of Didgori, 40 km west of Tbilisi, on August 12, 1121. The battle resulted in King David IV of Georgia’s decisive victory over a Seljuk invasion army under Ilghazi and the subsequent reconquest of a Muslim-held Tbilisi, which became the royal capital. The victory at Didgori inaugurated medieval Georgia’s “Golden Age” and is celebrated in the Georgian chronicles as a “miraculous victory”.
