The palace is a low building that was built in 1672 in Persian style by Artchil II, king of Kakheti when he moved his capital from Gremi to Telavi..

Photo 5 is a statue standing in front of Erakli?s palace that I have been unable to identify

I have found a news agency information from October 7th 2009, reporting that due to heavy rains five vitrages from the palace were damaged and should be replaced immediately. According to Guram Urchukhishvili, director of the museum, as the vitrages had been made in Oriental style, they had to be ordered in Azerbaidjan. As this was 3 years before my visit, I suppose that they have been replaced. Moreover, all looked in perfect condition.
