Metekhi Church

  Metekhi Rise 1     more than a year ago
The Church of Assumption, is a rather unusual example of a domed Georgian Orthodox church. It was built by the Georgian king St Demetrius II circa 1278–1284, but was subsequently damaged and repaired several times. King Rostom (1633-1658) fortified the area around the church with a strong citadel garrisoned by some 3,000 soldiers. Under Russian rule the church was used as a barracks.
