Qobairi Convent is located in the Tumanian District, on the left side of the Debeda River, at the middle of the gorge. From the middle of the 13th century, the convent was passed into the ownership of the Georgian Church with the support of the wife of Shanshe Mkhargrdzeli, which marked the beginning of the great rebuilding. Kobairi preserves numerous donor inscriptions; tombstons are carved with Georgian epitaphs. The principal church was painted with murals by Georgians.

Qobairi accommodates the tombs of Zakaria Mkhargrdzeli, Commander-in-Chief of Army under Queen Tamar, and his family. There are numerous traces of church sites around the convent.
