After a short break, I return to continue my series of posts inspired from my trip to Gerogia. I realize that there is still a lot to write and have to go on an overdrive if I have to complete it any time soon. There is no better place than the Sameba Cathedral to restart my journey.
Sameba Cathedral or The Holy Trinity Cathedral is the main cathedral of the Georgian Orthodox church in Tbilisi. Built between 1995 and 2004, the Sameba Cathedral is the third tallest Eastern Orthodox Cathedral.

The cathedral symbolizes the Georgian national and spiritual revival. The architecture showcases the various stages of the Georgian history with byzantine undertones.
The cathedral in its entity houses a monastery, theology school and nine chapels. Five of these chapels are underground.

Tbilisi city tour is never complete without a visit to this magnificent cathedral. After spending close to an hour at the architectural marvel, it is now time to proceed to the next location – The Narikala Fortress.
