Ambara church

Local nameХрам Амбара

The Ambara church is located in the Gudauta District, Abkhazia/Georgia, on the cape of Myussera, close to the mouth of the Ambara stream.

The Ambara church complex consists of a half-ruined three-nave basilica, a stone fence and remains of several additional secular structures, dated by scholars from the 8th to the 10th century. The basilica has a roughly processed ashlar stone surface, a two-storey narthex and an upper gallery on the west facade. The main nave vault bears traces of the Late Medieval reconstruction.The Ambara church is one of the tourist destinations in Abkhazia. The area is reportedly increasingly being littered. Georgia has inscribed the church on its list of cultural heritage and treats it as part of cultural heritage in the Russian-occupied territories with no known current state of condition.
