Kessariani has a triangle scheme and a good street plan, based on the central avenue and the other horizontal and vertical to that, streets. Its population, according to the census in 1991, was 27.000, but it actually exceeds 35.000. The suburb today after going through fire and water, is considered to be an advantageous place to live in, mostly due to the environment and the warmth of its people. The suburb is growing; it has won several fights regained its footing and stood up. Today it attracts many people, it has somewhat changed. But its history, still wanders about everywhere, it lies in every part of it. History that moulds our character and forms our conscience.
