Bagrati Cathedral

Bagrati church of the Assumption of the Virgin was built by King Bagrat III in Kutaisi, in 1003 AD. It is a marvellous example of domed-church architecture from the high medieval period, noted with impressive examples of stone carving. Cathedral is situated on the top of the hill called Ukimerioni and commands a splendid view of Georgia’s second city, Kutaisi. This was an ancient citadel, a royal palace and one of the most important castles from 6th to 17th c.
