For the general tourist, this is valuable for its antiquity and beauty. For anyone with any spiritual interest, this is a vastly significant church with a long history of worship and worth visiting for that reason alone.

Works in progress but worth the visit. Nice, dark and attractive church, and as said a nice place to start the city visit.

Small Church located up in the hill. The location is very good to take some photos. After we saw the Church, we went to he back and chilled there watching old Tbilisi and the River down, Nice place. Do visit this place since you are in Old Tbilisi.

This Cathedral while not the greatest in the world is noticeable from all angles of the area. At night the cathedral and statue co located are both well lit and provide for very appealing photography. This is one of the best photos of all Tbilisi in my mind. I very much recommend this location with the river running along side.... More

I love where it stands, how sacred it is especially when you visit inside the Cathedral. It is along the Mtkvari (Kura) River and there's this amazing monument. Please ensure that when you visit the Cathedral, bring your shawl to use for covering your head and not wear short skirt as sign of respect.
