Monastery Motsameta

When in the 8th century Arabs invaded Georgia, many people rebelled against them. Two princes David and Konstantine Mkheidze of Argveti were among the ones who fought with the enemy in Western Georgia. Murvan bin Muhammad (called “the Deaf” by the Georgians) the Arab commander ordered the arrest of the brothers. He wanted to force them to convert from Orthodox to Islam as he believed that once the brothers change the religion others will follow them.
