The Tsminda Sameba Cathedral is a beautiful massive church that overlooks Tbilisi. It was built recently and the attention to details...worth the visit

A modern structure of massive proportions, it is build on a promontory, so it is visible from just about anywhere. Couldn't help but wonder how many more useful things could have been built using the same amount of money.

This Cathedral is amazing. During the evening it lights up and is visible from different parts of the city. The religious icons inside the cathedral are wonderful. It is worth visiting this place!
