Lekarti Churchofcircular shape is surrounded by monumental archesalmost across the entire perimeter (except its one third). Only contour outline survives of the majority of pillars around the church. The interior preserves two metre tall fragments of original pillars. The masonry is made of square red bricks (23x23x5cm) fixed in lime mortar. The round wall fragments (height  – 5m; thickness – 145 cm) attest to the use of local rubble andwater tufawith lime mortar.

The second tier of the interior wall of what remains of Lekarti Church also preserves small cylindrical pilasters of hewn stone arranged rhytimically on the surface of the round wall. The pilasters articulate the cylindrical wall into sections creating an impression of monumental decorative framing.

The church can be tentatively dated to the 7th century.
