The villages of Abasha, Kvatana and Sakacharavo were included in the Sachilao Samouravo at the beginning of the XIX century. The formation of the territory as an urban center is connected with the opening of the Tbilisi-Poti railway in 1870, when the Abasha railway station opened. The surrounding territory of the railway station was called Abasha and it covered former villages: Abasha, Kvatana, Sakacharavo. Since 1923 it received the status of a small town. From 1930 it became a center of the region. Since 1963, Abasha received a city status.
