Jruchi’s Monastery

The Jruchi monastery complex built in the 11th century is located in Sachkhere on the headwaters of the Jruchula River, an eastern tributary of the Kvirila River. Jruchi monastery complex includes a dome-like church built in the XI century and modified in the 19th century. There are lapidary writings on the wall. The church was destroyed and renewed in the 16th–17th centuries.

For many years heads of Racha state and Tsereteli royals were fighting over the Jruchi Gorge. During this time, the territory became known as a castle.

In the 1760, Jruchi monastery was reconstructed by King Solomon I. He permitted Tseretelian ancestors to be buried there.

By 1810 the monastery possessed a lot serf lands in upper Imereti and Racha.

In 1810 when Russia invaded Imereti, Jruchi monastery was declared a possession of Tseretelian ancestry. Other Middle Age buildings remain in the monastery territory.
