Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in Mtskheta, Georgia

Black Sea Circuit 2013 

A Babushka with a sparkle in her eye welcomed me through the entrance to this 11th Century Svetitskhoveli Cathedral (Life-giving Pillar) in Mtskheta; a UNESCO World Heritage site known to be where Christ's mantle is buried. This beautiful cathedral remains to be one of the most sacred places in Georgia.
