This stunning cathedral in the heart of Arsukidze dates back to the early 11th century and serves as a visual reminder of the iconic Georgian architecture that has made this region famous. Travelers will find ornate stone carvings on Svetitskhoveli’s exterior and detailed frescos on the interior walls. The robes of Jesus Christ are said to be tucked underneath the church’s nave. For this reason, thousands of pilgrims find their way to this famous cathedral every year. Travelers can revel at the artistry of what’s widely considered the most beautiful church in the nation, and learn about the Georgian monarchs who are buried here as they explore the grounds.
