Metekhi Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary is in the ancient historical district of Metekhi in old Tbilisi, on the left bank of the Mtkvari River. The main sanctuary of the temple is the tomb of St. Shushanik. Catholicos Kyrion transferred the remains of the saint from the small town of Tsurtavi to the Metekhi temple after the ecclesiastical split between the Armenians and the Georgians at the start of the 7th century.
