Chugureti St. Astvatsatsin Church (Georgia.


Chugureti St. Astvatsatsin church is not mentioned in old Tbilisi sources and documentation. It is included in the city plan in 1825 already, as well as in a list of Armenian churches of Tbilisi written on 16 December 1831. Historians prefer to date its construction at the start of the 19th century. According to Irakliy II gift certificate, "in 1795 the state village Chugureti with the local inhabitants and lands given to Karapet and Georgiy, children of Sargis-agha (Amatuni) for life tenancy and now order ashigh-agha-basha Tamaz Orbelyanov to give the village for life tenancy".

Chugureti St. Gevorg church, which was constructed by Yerevantsi Papen and Yakov Kocharov in 1807.

There was a note engraved near baptismal of Chugureti St. Astvatsatsin and on the fence, which was later destroyed, the note said: "Remember, O Lord, the soul of the late George Miro Mirimanyants, 27 of the month of March, 1857". This is a unique example when epigraphs are completely identical.

Soviet years and modern times

During Soviet years the church did not function, but escaped destruction along with 11 other Armenian churches destroyed by Lavrentiy Beria order in 1930s.

After Soviet collapse the church was consecrated as Orthodox church.
