The church in Pasanauri

The church in Pasanauri is a lost Orthodox temple of Georgia, built at the end of the 19th century. The building was constructed in the eclectic style (a mix of two or more architectural styles). The church is combination of Russian and Neo-Byzantine styles. The Neo-Byzantine style began to be used for Orthodox churches during the reign of Alexander II (1855 – 1881). The Russian architectural style was popular throughout the 19th century.

The architectural composition of this church is a variation of the “Eight on Four” (construction of an octagonal volume on a quadrangular base – here the octagon stands on a cruciform base).

Unfortunately, it is unknown in honor of which saint or which feast day the church in Pasanauri was consecrated. The architect of this church is also unknown.
