Samtavro church stands in the center of Mtskheta. It was built in the 1130?s over the graves of king Mirian and queen Nana that can still be seen in the church. King Mirian was the founder of the Chosroid dynasty. Samtavro church has for a long time been the residence of the kings of Mtskheta. It is now a nunnery.
