  • Saint marine church

The St. Marine Church is located on Dusheti Street in Avlabari, it is disposed in the depth of the yard and is surrounded by the residential houses, in the south, above the door a bilingual inscription (Georgian and Russian) informs the date of the church construction - 1856. This church was constructed with the will of the Metropolite Isidore. The hall type church is constructed of the European brick. The conch is inscribed in the rectangular and is not protruded from the façade, the entrances are disposed on two sides of the church, the central one - in the southward and the second one – the smallest is placed in the east corner of the northern arm, the windows on the facades are framed with brick, the false windows with the similar frames are replacing each other on the facades as well. Each of them is of helmet type and their symmetrical disposal creates a kind of rhythm. The stepped crosses among the arches are made by the deepening of the layers.

The interior is divided by three supportive arches that are relying on the protruded strip pilasters having the simple profile, all the arches are lancet kind ones. The bell tower, covered with double sloped roof is built on the western arm of the church. Under the pediment, on the both sides the crosses are depicted, the rectangular false dome disposed on the east side, is decorated with the similar crosses. After the soviet regime was established, St. Marine’s church had the same fate as the other churches in Georgia, the liturgical ceremonies were terminated and the photo lab was disposed in it instead. The church has been in function again since 2002.
