Koreti

The village Koreti is located in the gorge of the Kvirila River in Sachkhere region. There is a church, which is classified as Georgian architectural monuments located in the village. It was built at the end of 10th century in the place of the pre-Christian church, dedicated to deity.

The building has a hall style. In the southwest part, the gate is attached. Alter is located one step higher. It has two entrances – one in the south and one in the west. The facades are ornamented. It is decorated with wonderfully peeled stone shapes. In 1945 and 1955 during archeological digs two barrows dated back to the Bronze Aged were found there in stony ground.

In the inventory of burial ground, there were metal axes and dagger scabbards. The handle of one of the daggers is decorated with sinuous ornaments and spirals. Also, jewelry decorations like pins, rings for the temple and hooks were found there.

Similar materials were discovered in Sachkhere, on the Chalk Hill. The researchers catch the likeness to Kura-Araxes culture of Kartli. They have been burying dead people in such kind of burial ground since the middle ages of 3rd century B.C.
