What travelers say:

Leaving the European-style street, we walked to the Cathedral of Zion in Tbilisi not far away. The tall church is located on the edge of the old city. This church is currently the seat of the bishop of the Georgian Orthodox Church, so it is called the main church. The unpretentious church was built between the 6th and 7th centuries. In this country's troubled history, it has been destroyed many times. The church building we see now was built in the 13th century, and later changed in the 17th to the 19th century. So this church is also the oldest place in Tbilisi. Walking into the church and seeing the interior decoration is indeed extraordinary, especially the frescoes are everywhere, and there are many people who come here to pray sincerely. We read the introduction of the scenic spots outside the church. This was the first official visit to the church during this Transcaucasus trip. Unexpectedly, the subsequent church tour made us dizzy, and in the end even a little "church aesthetic" fatigue.
