Samtavisi / Самтависи

Samtavisi is an eleventh-century Georgian Orthodox cathedral in eastern Georgia, in the region of Shida Kartli.

The cathedral is located on the left bank of the Lekhura River, some 11km of the town of Kaspi. According to a Georgian tradition, the first monastery on this place was founded by the Assyrian missionary Isidore in 572 and later rebuilt in the 10th century. The cathedral was built by a local bishop and a skilful architect Hilarion who also authored the nearby church of Ashuriani. Heavily damaged by a series of earthquakes, the Cathedral was partially reconstructed in the 15th and 19th centuries.

Самтависи – грузинский православный храм (XI в.) в восточной Грузии, в регионе Шида Картли.

Собор расположен на левом берегу реки Лехура,  в 11 км от города Каспи. По данным грузинской истории, первый монастырь на этом месте был основан ассирийским миссионером Исидором в 572, а затем перестроен в 10 веке.Собор был построен местным епископом и умелым архитектором Иларионом, который также является автором церкви Ашуриани. Сильно поврежденый сериями землетрясений, собор был частично перестроен в 15 и 19 вв.
