The Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin is located in Gori on Lomouri street 7, just opposite to the Gori Fortress.
Some might be surprised noticing that this church looks like a typical Catholic church rather than a typical Georgian Orthodox church.

During Soviet times, Gori’s Music School was situated in the church. The building was handed over to the Georgian Orthodox Church in the 1990s.
Currently, Samtavisi and Gori Cathedral belong to the episcopacy.
