Among all these valued legacies is the Jvari Monastery located at the precipice of a vertical side-cliff. It is a remarkable and important pilgrimage site, a sacred landmark and the most ancient cult monument constructed in the beginning of Georgian Christianity in the 6th century. Another must-see is the Georgian architectural masterpiece Svetitskhoveli Cathedral. It was built on the grave of Sidonia - who was believed to be buried with Christ's robe and was the site for coronation and burial of Georgian kings. Today’s Cathedral was established in the 11th century and serves as the seat of the Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia.
