The wooden church of Lumparland was built in 1728 to replace the earlier church destroyed by fire. First record of church in Lumparland dates back to the year 1540 and it was sanctified to St. Andrew. The current church was originally painted with red, repainted to yellow (in 1870) and once again to white color in 1896. The interior is from the 19th century, the altarpiece for example was made by Victor Westerholm in 1887.
Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.
The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
