The Cathedral of the Dormition, or the Kutaisi Cathedral, more commonly known as Bagrati Cathedral (Georgian: ბაგრატი; ბაგრატის ტაძარი, or Bagratis tadzari), is an 11th-century cathedral in the city of Kutaisi, in the Imereti region of Georgia. A masterpiece of medieval Georgian architecture, the cathedral suffered heavy damage throughout centuries and was reconstructed to its present state through a gradual process starting in the 1950s, with controversial conservation works concluding in 2012. These works prompted UNESCO to remove the Cathedral from its list of World Heritage sites. A distinct landmark in the scenery of central Kutaisi, the cathedral rests on the Ukimerioni Hill.

  • One of Tourist Attractions in Georgia-Kutaisi. Nice place to visit. This heritage site has been modernized in recent times with elevators, Which turn out to be lost its UNESCO status. Nevertheless, its worth visiting. You can participate in daily ceremonies/prayers if you are interested as still this cathedral in use for public.
  • Very old and very nice cathedral. With modern reconstruction parts. And great city view. Definitely worse visiting.
