It is a small village located on the bank of the Kveruni (Dzevrula) River. The village was mentioned in 1188 in a deed issued by the King Tamar where she talks about “the Head of the Gogni Fortress”. In 1778 the Queen Mariam, the wife of the Imereti King Solomon I, built a Church of Dormition of Virgin in Gogni and founded there a monastery. Nowadays only ruins of the fortress and the church remain. On a hill close to Gogni Village there is a little chapel of Saint George (Giorgi).

Every year on the 6th of May and 23rd of November thousands of pilgrims travel barefoot for 4 km to pray to the saint. There’s no door in the chapel because each time when people install them, as the legend says, the portrait of Saint George shows up and the door fell off. That’s why the chapel was called Karugdebeli (“the one that doesn’t want door”). Right now, above the Karugdebeli chapel, the biggest church of Saint George is being built.
