Akhalkalaki

Akhalkalaki is a city in Georgia and the administrative centre of the Samtskhe-Javakheti region. Akhalkalaki was mentioned at the end of the 12th century, in the occasion of giving Akhalkalaki with other provinces of Southern Armenia to Armenian Zakaryans as a heritage estate by Georgian queen Tamar. In 1637 the city was conquered by Ottoman Turks, after it passed under the rule of the Russian Empire. In 1830 years thousands of Armenians, who emigrated from Erzrum, settled in Akhalkalaki. When Armenia and Georgia became a part of the Soviet Union on November 6 of 1921 a contract was signed between 2 soviet republics, according to which, Akhalkalaki province passed to the territory of Georgia.
