A beautiful site in Tbilisi! It’s a must see if you’re spending any amount of time in Georgia. Obviously there are many churches here, but this is the grand daddy of them all. Plan at least an hour or two for your visit. There’s also a garden for you to relax in
It was a very historical and magnificent place. I'd suggest you visit this place. One of the places you should definitely see in Tiflis. There are several other churches beside it and there is a very beautiful environment. Men are aware that they can not go in with shorts
Tbilisi or perhaps whole of Georgia is full of churches. You can pretty much find one church in every area if not couple of them close to each other and then you have one church that stand out and stand tall above all. This Trinity church is certainly the one. It’s a massive structure and very well kept from inside out. We happened to be there when there was some sort of prayers being sung. That made the entire experience even better. It also has some kind of bloody history attached to it. We were informed that the king of that time killed all the labour and engineers so nothing of this sort can be built again. Anyway, it was worth the visit for its history and structure.
Very peaceful and spiritual place to be. Our tour guide told us many interesting pieces of information about signicianf depictions of scenes from the Bible in the church. The presence of some hidden spirit inside you almost seems to be real. Well, it’s real, you just have to see it.
One of the highest orthodox cathedral in the world is Trinity from Tbilisi. Worked in stone, with impressive architecture and many underground levels, each one having direct gate to the garden organized in terraces, will satisfy you eyes. Dear tourist, put in your plan to visit that monument and you will not regret.
