There is a ardent commitment to their Orthodox faith throughout Georgia but I felt a visit to this cathedral gave as good a view as anywhere I visited into the strength and manner of how Georgians express their faith. The cathedral is modern (2004) but in a traditional style, tall (84m) and dominates much of south east Tbilisi (by day and at night). It is usually busy with Georgians of all ages visiting not as tourists but as part of their devotion to their faith. Try to go when there's a service on (e.g. Sundays), no one will mind if you stand (as everyone) and hold a candle (the old man next to me gave me his) as you listen to the evocative Georgian chants and prayers and feel the religious zeal of those around you.
