Likhauri Monastery

On the Likhauri territory people lived in the Neolithic era. In the early feudal era there was the political center of Guria Principality. Likhauri Monastery of the Virgin Birth was built in the second half of the XIII century. This is a hall-type building. On the west side the gate is attached to the temple, probably of later period. It is obvious that the church was repeatedly reconstructed. As a building material it was used grayish quadras of different sizes, and for floors - isosceles tile. During the upgrade, the remains of the church painting were erased by the restorers.

In Lkhauri temple the miraculous icon is kept, which is called Sazaro. People swore before this icon. If a man gave a false oath Likhauri Virgin punished him.

In Soviet times, the church was closed. It opened in 1991.
