This hall-type, single-nave church was built in the XI century and has three entrances, on the south, west, and north side. The church was constructed with tufa and carved quadro stone and adorned with rich carvings and reliefs. Doors, windows, and the east façade are plastered with whitish limestone.
Raketi St. Nikolozi Church was reconstructed in the 1970s and the iconostasis, adorned by refined carving, was partially recovered. Its original fallen parts are kept at the church.
Scientists found inscriptions on the east façade as follows: “St. Nicholas, you are the miracle worker and lord of the centuries, be the patron of Kakha and Adelaida who built this church every day of their lives”.
