Jvaris Mama

41 Kote Abkhazi St.

Jvaris Mama – this name comes from a Georgian church in Jerusalem. On this very place there was a small temple in the 5th century which was destroyed by Mongols invasion. The church was restored in the 16th century. During Age-Mohamed-Khan conquest it was repeatedly demolished. Then it was renewed in 1825. Reconstruction works are now going on.
