This seems to be a famous cathedral in the old town area. We visited on Palm Sunday and it was very crowded with worshippers. Women must have their heads covered to enter any of the Orthodox churches.

For those that see the first time a goergian church - great to see and experience it. When you have seen the world heritage sites then it is esp. a great viewing Platform for taking Pictures of Tbilissi.

This Cathedral is about a 45 minute drive from Tbilisi and definitely worth it! The Cathedral is near a body of water make the views spectacular! Be careful when walking from the car park down to the entrance and the path can be slippery. Make sure to walk all the way around the Cathedral to gain the full experience. Also... More

This site is well worth the trip up from the city and the short walk to the top of the hill. The Cathedral itself is much like many others, but it extremely well maintained. However the view is one that should not be missed. The sholw valley laid out before you. Your camera/camera phone will love you!

My focus here is just the surrounding of the area why I went here. When your on top you can see the 360 views of the old town. Some drinking fountain available and the garden outside the church is classy.

Very historic, beautiful and solemn. We even saw a bride walking out of the church. A must see in Georgia.

It stands on the Metekhi cliff, which is located in the historic center of Tbilisi, in the same place near the monument to Vakhtang Gorgasal. Generally it refers to a rock Avlabari district, although in fact closer to the Old Town. This place - the geographic center of the city, convenient to count on his mileage. It's a good lookout....
