The landmark Metekhi Church, and the 1960s equestrian statue of King Vakhtang Gorgasali beside it, occupy the strategic rocky outcrop above the Metekhi Bridge. This is where Vakhtang Gorgasali built his palace, and the site’s first church, when he made Tbilisi his capital in the 5th century.

The church behind the sculpture of Vakhtang Gorgasali, grand and beautiful, old and humble, beautiful and warm, with icons worthy to stop by, and a little shop to purchase candles for prayers and blessings. Recommended!

Don't miss this Church, it's interior, sights overlooking the valley, AMAZING! Just check it out on internet. It's close to Tblisi and well worth a visit. And it's absolutely 'just another church'. I went there with my driver and guide, and as he know the priest I got an interesting talk, by help of a interpreter too, Recommended! Enjoy!

Good view from the cathedral. Was under renovation when we visited it. So had stuff lying around. Beware the beggars that come up. Just ignore them and walk on. Don't say anything to them.
