Although the new Tsminda Sameba Holy Trinity Cathedral is far bigger and more impressive, this one marks the Tbilisi landscape, for two reasons.
First, it's dramatic position, in the sole city center at an elevated cliff edge makes it a Tbilisi symbol (the Sameba is further away uphill).
Second, it's very old, dating back to 13 cent., it was several times restored but never demolished, so you're looking at the real history.
To visit it you need some effort in climbing the hill from the back side. You still see the remains of old fortress which once encircled it.
The interior is very nice, not lavishly decorated, but old and mystic mostly in stone and great icons.
From the plateau in front there are fabulous views of all Tbilisi.

I liked this church very much. Both for the view outside as well as the interior decorations. What also highlights this church from others is how it sits above the river below.

The Metekhi Cathedral is located just above the city’s restaurant and cafe hub. It’s the perfect spot to get a 360 degrees view of Tblisi and to watch the perfect mix of the old and the new.
