Photographer's Note

Inside the Ananuri fortress there are two churches. The oldest is that of the Virgin, which rests on a high square tower, containing the tombs of some of the Dukes of Aragvi. It dates from the first half of the seventeenth century, and was built of brick. Inside there is a stone canopy erected by the widow of Duke Edishera, who died in 1674.

The largest church is that of the Assumption (Ghvtismshobeli), built in 1689 by the son of Duke Bardzem. It is a central dome-style structure with richly decorated facades, including a carved north entrance and a carved vine-branch cross on the south faade. It also contains remains of frescoes, which include a Last Judgment.
