About Sights – Djansug Kakhidze Garden

The Djansug Kakhidze Garden in Agmashenebeli Avenue in Tbilisi is named after Jansug Kakhidze, music director of the nearby Georgian State Symphony Orchestra for two decades. 

Statues of Iliko Sukhishvili and his wife Nino Ramishvili, created by sculptor Zurab Tsereteli, stand at the entrance to the Garden. Together, they founded the Georgian National Ballet and it is due to their efforts that Georgian national dancing and music has become known in many parts of the world.
