In 1810 the exarch Teopilakte obtained both the palace and the church and disposed the theological seminary and parish schools in it, in 1824 the exarch Iona sanctified the church as the Christ’s transformation church and founded a monastery.

The stone and brick church belongs to the hall type churches and is roofed with lancet arch. The conch is protruded from outside in a semicircle way, the influence of the Iranian architect is felt in the decorations of the facades: the walls are built in a fishbone style and they are divided with low helmet type arches. The rhombus and the crosses made of the deepening of the brick layer are of decorative character.

The church was restored in the 19th century, the western gate also belongs to this period, the gate is crowned with the bell tower, and the interior was painted in the second half of the 19th century by Anton and Davit Gegelidze. The church was last restored in 1990, and in 2001 the altar was repainted.
