Katskhi temple was built at the beginning of the XI century. It was built by powerful feudals - the Baghvashi. The temple was burned down twice and it was rebuilt in the 16th century. The Katskhi Temple is one of the most distinctive and original monuments of Georgian architecture. An architectural monument of similar forms is not found anywhere else. The building is surrounded by a pentagonal fence. There are images of bas relief (mostly lions) above the entrances to the church. All the bas-relief of the temple has Asomtavruli (Old Georgian script) inscriptions. Most of the inscriptions are engraved.
