Savane

Savane is located in the region of Sachkhere, in the highlands of Imereti, on the watershed of the Izvari River and the Lashuri River. The name of the village was first mentioned in scripts in the 11th century. There’s Saint George’s Church, located in the village, which according to the inscription written above the southern entrance was constructed in 1046. Here is also mentioned a feudal, a son of Duke Giorgi Gulzviadi. The inscription on the western wall says that the church was built by an architect Haraba. The gallery hall gates were built later with decorations of mixed shapes and styles. In the church there is an icon dating back to the 11th century which was damaged during reconstruction in the 19th century. The bell tower was built in the 19th century. A great Georgian poet and a public figure, Prince Akaki Tsereteli spent his childhood in the village of Savane. Following an old family tradition he was raised there by a peasant’s family. Over there he learnt about the way of life of poor people which later influenced a lot his adult life.
