Metekhi St. Virgin Church

Tbilisi, Georgia
4.6 / 14
The church is located on the edge of a sheer cliff, which is located in the center of Tbilisi. It was erected in the XIII century on the site of the palace of the founder of the city of Vakhtang I Gorgasali. Over the next three centuries, the building was destroyed several times. The temple built in the 16th century has survived to this day. The architecture of the church is an exemplary example of Georgian temple architecture, which is characterized by laconic forms and the absence of decorative elements.
