The Church of Dadiani Palace, Zugdidi
This attached Church was built in 1838 as the personal church of the Dadiani family.
The small stone church named “Church of the Icon of the Mother of God” is a typical Christian Orthodox church – no seats inside, just open space with stations to light candles and some religious icons here and there around the interior.
It was solemn beautifully in the church.
