6 Main Orthodox Temple of Georgia

Main Orthodox Temple of Georgia

Posted on September 3, 2012 by team


"Sameba" is the main temple of the Georgian Orthodoxy. It is located in the Armenian block where historically mostly Armenians live.

It was built not so long ago on the territory of an Armenian cemetery. Not all the locals wanted the temple to raise there because the builders didn't bother much about reburials.

But today almost nothing reminds about that conflict. People like the new temple. Unfortunately the photographs do not reveal its real scale.

    It’s a beautiful church. I wonder how much it cost to build.

    The saint with the beard and crown looks similarly to Prince Lazar of Serbia, who defended Christianity and died in the Battle of Kosovo in 1389.

    It is interesting to notice that Sameba in Tbilisi is the tallest, Saint Sava Temple in Belgrade, Serbia is the largest by volume, and Christ the Savior Temple in Moscow, Russia is largest by area Orthodox Christian church in the world.

      I do not understand why they put the national flag in the church. National symbols do not belong in a church as the church has been there before nationalism.

    Magnificant and very beautiful church.. It would be even more attractive if the ceiling and some portions of the walls had biblical frescas. Just a suggestion for georgian architects.

    There is no god. Tear it down and build a school of science.

      Why not commit suicide and live this life of insignificance? Since there is not a god and suicide is cannot be a sin it is the best thing you could do.
