  • Iveria virgin Mary church

Iveria Virgin Mary Church is located on E. Manjgaladze Street, the church bearing the same name and constructed in the 80s of the 19th century was located on the very place, its leader was the priest Mikheil Makhatadze, later a presbyter. The parish school, founded by the priest existed with the school. Very soon after the establishment of the soviet regime, in 1924 the church was made into the shoe factory, and later it was turned into the bath house. In 1988 the damaged building was dismantled and the preparation for the construction of the new church was launched. The construction was led by the priest Vakhtang Asatiani, in 1991 with his leadership the St. Archangel small chapel was constructed in church yard. The architect of Iveria Virgin Mary newly constructed church is M. Kiknadze, the church was consecrated in 1997, it was painted by M. Chakvetadze.

Rather a big church is faced with greenish, well hewn stone tiles, its entrances are disposed on three sides, the lunette of the western door is decorated with Portaitisa relief, the southern gate is built to the church and is opened with a couple of arches, the third, small gate enables us to get to the baptistery that is disposed in the northern arm of the church. The facades are distinguished by the richness of the ornaments and by the symmetry of the composition. The window frames and the crosses on the facades are decorated with the geometrical and plant ornaments. Virgin Mary parish school, founded in 2003 is located in the east part of the churchyard.
