The battle of Choloki took place on 4 June 1854 on the outskirts of village Kakuti in Guria during the Crimean war. After being defeated in the battle of Nigoiti Ottomans retreated to Ozurgeti in order to regroup. Russo-Georgian detachments, under the command of Ivane Andronikashvili, advanced at a steady and fast pace. Ottomans were located in the left bank of Choloki river. The Gurian posse was the first to suddenly assault Ottomans, after that Georgians shelled from artillery and started decisive offensive attack. As ottomans were forced to flee their plans to enter in Samtskhe–Javakheti were collapsed.
