Rabati Castle lies in the city of Akhaltsikhe, in the Akhaltsikhe municipality in the Samtskhe–Javakheti region in Georgia.
Rabati Castle consists of a small castle on the highest point. Then there is a middle bailey which holds a mosque, a madrasa, a church and a palace. And finally the outer bailey. From the outer bailey there is a covered walkway that leads down the Potskhovi River.
From the 13th to the end of 14th centuries Akhaltsikhe was the capital city of Samtskhe-Saatabago, ruled by the Georgian princely family and a ruling dynasty of the Principality of Samtskhe, the House of Jaqeli. In 1393 it suffered an attack by the Turco-Mongol armies of Tamerlane.
After the Treaty of Constantinople in 1590, the whole territory of Samtskhe-Saatabago came under Ottoman rule. The Ottomans completely rebuilt the castle during the 17th and 18th century. The present mosque was built in 1752.
In 1810 the Russian Empire attempted to take Rabati Castle from the Ottomans but failed. In 1828, during the Russo-Turkish War of 1828-1829, the castle was taken by the Russian Imperial army, led by General Paskevich, at the Battle of Akhaltsikhe. After that, the castle lost its importance and slowly fell to ruin.
In 2011-2012 the entire complex was rebuilt.
