The village of Chkheri is located on the bank of the Chkherimela River. It was first mentioned in the historical sources in the 17th century.

In 1774, there was a big fight near the village during wich the Imereti King Solomon I commanded the Georgian Army and severely beat the Ottomans.

In Chkheri, there are ruins of a medieval church which construction was dedicated to Queen Tamar.

Vakahni Fortress

In the village of Vakhani on the top of a hill, there are ruins of a monument of the Georgian Architecture – Vakhani Fortress.

The fortress protected the road coming from the Likhi Mountains. The fortress was built of big roughly processed stone blocks. It has no embrasures, which confirms that it was constructed before the introduction of firearms. Inside defensive walls in the Northeast corner, there is a small chapel built of rough stones. In 1785, the Vakhani Fortress was occupied by the Nutsallhi Pasha from Avar Khanate (a state in the North Caucasus), who fought with Georgian King Erekle II. It is probable that the fortress was ruined at that time.
