The stone halls of this fascinating site are composed of two stages of construction: pre-Christian and Christian.
The megalithic structures, constructed by arranging boulders, are an example of secular medieval (11th-13th centuries) architecture, extraordinary in its monumentality and construction technique.

It is likely that the residence of a wealthy local feudal lord was also in this place.
Complexes with a similar structure may be found frequently in some regions of Georgia, but the “halls” of Chobiskhevi stand out for their distinctive construction techniques and sheer size.
