Ninotsminda

 

a village in the Georgian SSR, located approximately 35 to 40 km east of Tbilisi. It contains the ruins of a large stone church dating from the middle of the sixth century. The foundation of the church is tetragonal, and there are four small rooms between four main apses. Although the rooms have two apses on the inside, they are semicircular in shape on the outside. A three-story brick campanile (1550’s) and the two-story residence of the metropolitan (1774–77) are located near the church. The campanile is topped by a many-sided kiosk with a pyramidal roof.
