Narikala St.Nicholas Church

This is recently restored St.Nicholas church in the yard of ancient Narikala fortress. Narikala walls date from different period (the earliest 4th century), but the main fortifications we can see today are from 16-17th century. The original name of the citadel was "shuris tsikhe" meaning "fortess of envy", but the name "Narikala" was given later and it means "impartial fortress" in Persian. You can get wonderful views on Tbilisi from here.
