The  history  of  this  magnificent  town  turned  out  to  be  too  short  –  from  the  16th  century  to  the  first  decade  of  the  17th  century  it  was  the  capital  of  Kakheti.  It  consisted  of  several  districts:  church,  royal  residence  and  commercial  neighborhoods.  The  Archangel  Church,  considered  one  of  the  masterpieces  of  late  Medieval  Kakhetian  architecture,  was  built  in  1565  and  painted  in  1577.  It  hosted  intensive  cultural  and  literary  activities.  The  inner  unrest,  treason  and  finally  the  ravaging  invasions  of  Shah  Abbas’  armies  virtually  annihilated  entire  Kakheti  and  its  capital  was  never  rebuilt.
