The Kldisubani St. George Church or Qarapi Saint Gevorg church (Georgian: კლდისუბნის წმ. გიორგის ეკლესია, Kldisubnis Tsminda Giorgis Eklesia; Armenian: Քարափի Սուրբ Գևորգ եկեղեցի, or Karapi Surb Gevorg Yekeghetsi) is an 18th-century church at the foot of the Narikala citadel in Old Tbilisi, Georgia. The church is single-naved and was built in 1753. The Georgian Orthodox Church was built on the site of an ancient Georgian church which was built during the reign of St. King Vakhtang I of Iberia. The church was reconstructed with the help of Armenian merchant Petros Zohrabian and his wife Lolita and the restoration held by them in 1735, what makes the church one of the most important examples of Georgian-Armenian friendship and cooperation.
According to the Georgian Orthodox Church the ancient church that stood at the site of the current Church of Saint Georgie in Kldisubani was built by King Vakhtang I of Iberia and then was part of the "mother-castle ensemble". The ensemble "mother-castle" consisted of the Church of Forty Martyrs, monastery of Saint Catherine, Big Church of Saint George, Church of Saint George in Kldisubani, church called "Jris Mama" (Georgian: Father Cross) and lower Bethlemi monastery. The Kldisubani church of st. George has reached modern days with the help of Armenian merchant Petros Zohrabian and his wife Lolita, and the restoration held by them in 1735. In the year 1735 according to the map of prince Vakhushti there was a belltower at the west of the church.
