  • A small church in a small village. But what! Almost 1000 years and in spite of its age, it still takes parishioners. Located not far from the main road and therefore passing by just look at 1000 years ago. Pleasant journeys.

  • The temple is small, atmospheric. Above it built sheds for the preservation of ancient materials. You cannot take pictures inside the temple. The Abkhazian princes were buried in the yard. Near the temple ruins of the princely Castle. Outside the gate of the Church of brisk trade souvenirs, food and a range of Church benches.
