The fortress was destroyed many times, often besieged, so it absorbed the traces of various cultures and religions. In 2012 a large-scale reconstruction took place, after which the Rabat fortress Akhaltsikhe remained as a city within a city. At the same time, it became not only a historical monument, but also a real cultural centre of the city. Within the walls of the fortress, there is a church, a mosque, a synagogue, a small park, a historical museum, various shops, wine cellars, restaurants, cafes, a hotel and even a marriage registration office.
