Gremi Fortress 3D Model
Gremi once was an active Georgian trading post along the Silk Road, until it was razed in 1615 by Shah Abbas I of Persia. Historical ruins, and this, the Church of the Archangels, are all that remain of the once-vibrant city.
Church construction began in 1565. The complex modeled here includes the church itself, complete with belltower, alongside a three-story castle. The complex is encircled by a wall that features turrets and towers. Architecturally, it is remarkable for marrying Georgian masonry with local interpretations of Iranian architecture. Gremi fortress is on a list of proposed UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
