Khelvachauri - village in western Georgia, autonomous republic of Adjara. Is located in the Khelvachauri municipality and in the Sharabidzes community.
In the second half of the XIX century, part of Abkhaz, known as muhajirun moved from the Ottoman Empire to the villages of Silibauri, Ankisi and Feizi, in today's Khelvachauri municipality. The descendants of Abkhaz muhajiruns still live in the region - in total approximately 1600 ethnic Abkhazians.
Until 1917, the current Khelvachauri municipality area was included in Kutaisi province of Batumi region and since 1921 in administrative division of Batumi Okrug. In 1924, it was separated and was called Chorokhi Mazra but since 1929 it was called Batumi Mazra. From 1930 to 1968 it was Batumi district. Since 1968 it is Khelvachauri District and since 2006 - Khelvachauri municipality. In 2009-2011 the territory of the municipality decreased significantly due to the expansion of Batumi borders. Batumi was given over to ten villages of Khelvachauri municipality, Daba Makhinjauri and the administrative center of the municipality- Daba Khelvachauri. Therefore, the governance of the municipality is located in Batumi.
