Metekhi Cathedral, Tbilisi
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Overlooking the river on a rocky outcropping, Metekhi Cathedral describes the history of the nation. Sitting on the location of King Vakhtang Gorgasali's fortified citadel, built in this strategic location when he founded the city, the cathedral has been rebuilt several times. During the Soviet years it was used as theater after several failed attempts by the city's leader to destroy the structure. Cross-copula in design, the current cathedral was built between 1278 and 1289. Enter the cathedral, where you'll see small alcoves along the walls and painted frescoes primarily in gold and reds. Outside, take in the views of the town from this vantage point. Put Metekhi Cathedral and other Tbilisi attractions into our Tbilisi trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.
