Atchi Monastery

Legend says - in ancient times the village Atchi visited Devi (evil spirit). Tortured residents of Atchi prayed to St. George. St. George killed the evil spirit with spear, and the grateful people built a temple to the glory of St. George. Today you can see a large boulder on the Atchistskali riverside, which the locals call Devi boulder.

Atchi nave monastery was built in the late XIII at the beginning of the XIV century. The temple has two entrances - from the north and south sides. Over the southern gate crosses are engraved. Temple openings are covered with filigree ornaments. Church is completely painted inside. Gold, pearl and green tones dominated here. Inside the altar frescoes depict the twelve Christian prayers and festivities.

In Atchi monastery was a big bell, ringing of that reached up Likhauri. Monastery owned considerable property donated by Prince Gurieli. To date, there operates a convent.
