The first stone church on the Lendum site was presumably a Romanesque building built around 1200. In the end of the 16th century, it was so dilapidated that a complete reconstruction was needed. The church was restored as the current red brick building which is whitewashed except the eastern end and the southern wall. The pulpit is from 1640 and the altarpiece from 1722. The beautiful altar rails are made in wrought iron and the Roman baptismal font is in granite.

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.
