Khvtaeba church stands in front of the entrance into the Ikalto monastery complex. It is the largest of the three churches. It was built by Zenon on the site of an older church and was not much altered along the centuries. Most of it has been built between in the VIIIth and Ixth century. The cupola is made of bricks and was added in the XIXth as well as the bell tower (left of the second photo). It was restored in 2010.
