Overview of Darejan Palace

The Queen Darejan Palace

Many years later, the palace became a monastery, a seminary and a parish school. In the 70s of the XX century, the palace became the district museum of 26 commissioners, and the church was used as a warehouse. A little later, the palace became a one-actor theater, but after 1991 it became a monastery again, but now a women's one. Since 2003, the Mercy House has been operating here, and the entire Palace is an ornament and one of the symbols of Tbilisi.
