There are no written accounts about founding of the monastery, or carving out and painting its church. The lower part of the chancel of the church has preserved several incised inscriptions of the ninth – tenth centuries.

Threatened by destruction, at the end of 1999-beginning of 2000, fragments of the painting were removed and transferred to Tbilisi. Presently they are preserved in Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of the Georgian National Museum.
