The fortress complex covers a fairly large area, with an ellipsoidal double wall and four towers. The northern, western, and eastern towers all have a circular floor plan, while the southern tower has a square shape. The fortress was built using many types of stones held together using lime mortar.
Today the towers offer an amazing view of the nearby villages of Chkhorotsku and Martvili, but in the Middle Ages, they would have been used to control the surrounding area.
The fortress is three kilometres from the village, with a dirt road leading to it.
