Svetitskhoveli Cathedral

Tbilisi, Georgia
4.9 / 14
Zion Cathedral was a cathedral until 2004. The first temple on this site was erected in the VI century, later newer buildings appeared, in which fragments of previous buildings were used. As a result, the facade of the Zion Cathedral turned out to be composed of stone parts belonging to different eras. The most significant shrine of the church is the cross of St. Nino, which converted Georgia to the Christian faith.
