    Where did you find the picture? Oct 20, 2018 at 13:01

    Welcome to the site. I gave your post a more specific title, and added the tag identify-this which we use for all questions of this kind. Oct 20, 2018 at 14:42

    @WeatherVane There was still the possibility that this site scrubs meta data of uploaded pics - something that may not have happened to the OPs copy.

This would seem to be the Church of the Nativity of Jesus Christ in Chkondidi, Martvili Monastery, in Georgia.

    An "Art Print of Martvili Monastery" is ca. 50 images down a Google Image search for "Georgian Monastery" looking pretty similar to OP's pic.

  • To be clear, this is in Georgia the country, not Georgia the US state, correct? Oct 21, 2018 at 1:56

    @Thunderforge I can't imagine any place in the US having the name Chkondidi.

    Also, this church is far too old to be in the USA.
