Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, Georgia

Svetitskhoveli CathedraThe Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, literally, "the Living Pillar Cathedral", is a Georgian Orthodox cathedral located in the historical town of Mtskheta, Georgia. The current cathedral was built in the 11th century by the Georgian architect Arsukisdze, though the site itself is even older dating back to the early 4th century and is surrounded by a number of legends associated primarily with the early Christian traditions.

It is the second largest church building in the country, after the recently consecrated Tbilisi Sameba Cathedral, and is listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
