It is always a battle when funds are scarce but this Church is well worth helping. The frescoes are proof of this.
Sioni is between Erekle and Shardeni streets, which are currently the most popular streets for tourists and gourmands. It was the main cathedral till 2005. The best season for taking picture around Cathedral is Summer. This place has no additional attractions for tourists and it's not devoted to Tourism. Construction of Sioni started in 5th century.

as a new cathedral, I was quite impressed by the external appearance of the church. but nothing interesting inside. women dont need to cover their heads during their visit. I was there on a Sunday morning when there was a service. It was crowded and despite of the service it was loud.

we had to go two times to Sioni church becuse at the first time we were wearing shorts They warned us politely, this was understandable because this church is one of the holiest temples in the city. Also, I have to add it's always crowded.
Appears almost constantly in use by passers-by dropping for personal prayers, so obviously not to be treated as a tourist site. Ladies are expected to cover their heads. Delightful and full of character and interesting icons. Definitely one to see, although it is somewhat tucked away from the main city centre street, so would be easy to miss.
This church provides an understanding of the progress of the Christian culture through successive regimes that administered Georgia. Restoration is happening now and hope the damages are restored to provide understanding of a glorious era.
One of the holiest temples in Tbilisi. For that reason you should hurry up for catching a place at the church on Sunday. Otherwise you will hhave to join the sermon while ooking at the outer walls of the church.
