Ldzaa-nyha - one of the seven shrines of Abkhazia , located near the village Ldzaa Gagra district of Abkhazia . The prayers in the sanctuary are held by the Gochua priesthood annually on the Sunday closest to June 12.
In Soviet times, the sanctuary was destroyed, and immigrants from Georgia settled in its place.
However, after their departure, the collective farm authorities again settled Georgian settlers here, and everything repeated. This went on for more than four decades, until the Georgian-Abkhaz war began.
After fleeing the surrounding Georgian population during the war, the locals decided to revive the sanctuary. Houses and outbuildings built on its territory were demolished, sick and dried fruit trees were cut down. Later, the site under the revived sanctuary was fenced.
