Parts of this monastery date back to the 6th century and the present day cathedral was built in the 12th century. There is a beautiful fresco of Mart with Jesus. No photos allowed in the church.

Sorry, I can’t say. It’s rather more like a functioning religious place that is open to tourists rather than a public place, so it might actually be open. If you are staying in Tbilisi, you would most probably only go to... More
