Svetitskhoveli Cathedral

This Georgian architectural wonder dating back to the XI century has served as the religious center of the country for hundreds of years. The complex includes the church, a gate, a bell tower, castles, and clerical residences. The mantles of Christ and of the Prophet Elijah are both preserved in the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral. The tombs of Tbilisi's founder, King Vakhtang Gorgasali is also inside the building. The cathedral is included on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.

This lovely cathedral is the center piece of Mtskheta and the focal point for weddings, baptisms, etc. The cathedral itself feels much more authentic than the re-built Disney-esque town. A great place to wonder around and take photos. There is just enough light, the architecture is lovely, and the people watching is fantastic.
