Shuamta Things to Do: 15 reviews and 39 photos
Though we were not more than 100 meters away, the church could not be seen clearly. It was built in the XVIth century by Tinatin Gurieli, the wife of King Levan II and has some wall paintings preserved from that period. It was later restored by Irakli II. I have found that it was built in bricks and designed in the form of a cross. I have also found that it had a dome which apparently is not the case : it has a central round tower, where there should be a dome. Has it been built later, I don’t know.
