Object description

Batonis Tsikhe , literally, "the castle of batoni", that is, "the lord", is a 17th–18th century architectural monument in Telavi, the principal city of Georgia's eastern region of Kakheti. The Batonis Tsikhe complex contains surviving sections of the Persianate palace of the kings of Kakheti and a museum with archaeological and ethnographic exhibits, manuscripts, rare publications, and military equipment as well as a fine arts gallery. In 2007, several structures of the complex—the palace, rampart, and a royal chapel—were inscribed on the list of Georgia's Immovable Cultural Monuments of National Significance. The entire complex underwent extensive renovation in 2018.
