Create an itinerary including Bagrati Cathedral
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.

  • Such a beautiful cathedral situated a little higher from the city.. If you are planning to visit the city I would definitely recommend going here and offering prayers here.. Also do check out around outside of the cathedral as it has a really nice view of the city from above and there are some nice views to maybe click a picture or two 😉 We visited during May and it was raining here which was a bonus for us as the view was just stunning. Peace ✌🏻
  • It was a nice place to visit this cathedral is a world is a UNESCO world heritage site. While churches aren't my thing it does have a lovely view. And it is not a sight to be missed if you stay in this city.
