The monastery of Nekresi, preserved in the valley of the Alazani River, consists of several religious buildings of different times. The earliest building is a small church from the end of the 4th century. It was built shortly after the proclamation of Christianity as the official religion of the state.
The church is built of rough-hewn stone and stands on a foundation converted to a tomb. In the 6th-7th centuries the main temple of the Blessed Virgin was built here, which preserved fragments of wall inscriptions and frescoes of the 16th century. The complex also included a dome square church (IX cent.) And a bishop's palace of the 16th century.
