Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, literally "the Cathedral of the Living Pillar") is an Orthodox cathedral temple located in the historic city of Mtskheta, Georgia, 20 km northwest of the nation's capital, Tbilisi.

It is known for being the place where the Seamless Robe of Our Lord Jesus Christ was deposited, which gave the temple primacy over the Georgian churches. Today it remains one of the most revered places of worship and the seat of the Archbishop of Mtskheta and Tbilisi, who is at the same time the Catholicos-Patriarch of all Georgia.

The current cathedral was built in the 11th century by the architect Arsukisde, although the population in which it is found dates from the beginning of the 4th century, and is surrounded by a series of legends mainly associated with the first Christians who occupied the area.
It is the second largest church in the country, after the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Tbilisi, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with other historical monuments in Mtskheta.
