Fin gammal kyrka

Kaunis keskikokoinen milteipä suuri ristikirkko jossa samaan aikakauteen valmistunut kellotapuli. Jonka on piirtänyt Charles Bass intendentinkonttorissaan 1828. Kirkko rakennettiin Heikki Kuorikosken johdolla 1828-1829. Erikoisuutena on kirkkoon yhdyskäytävällä liitetty kellotapuli joka on Carl Ludvig Engelin piirtämä ja rakennettu 1831-1832. Kirkko on suunniteltu 800 hengelle ja on pohjapinta-alaltaan 600m2. Kellotapulin kellot ovat vanhempi kuin itse tapuli, valettu 1723 sekä 1817. Erittäin hyväkuntoinen kaunis kirkko jota ei ole muutoksilla pilattu. Hyvinkin katsomisen sekä tutustumisen arvoinen kirkko ruotsinkielisellä pohjanmaalla, joka tuo pieniä eroja tyylissä verratessa suomenkielisiin alueisiin. Myös hautausmaakin kannattaa katsella.

Narikala Castle

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.
