KHOKHOBI - THE FIRST INHABITANT OF THE TBILISI CITY
Khokhobi (Georgian for pheasant) is the name of the first inhabitant of the city of Tbilisi (also known as Tiflis).
Based on the legend King Vakhtang Gorgasali (r. 447-502) went hunting with a falcon. The King’s falcon caught a pheasant, but both birds fell into a nearby spring, which turned out to be hot. King Vakhtang was so impressed with the discovery that he decided to build a city on this location and named it Tbilisi meaning “warm location” because of the area’s numerous sulphuric hot springs in the Abanotubani district.
Located in the heart of above mentioned district, Hotel Khokhobi seats right next to the famous Sulphur Baths.
