    vetitskhoveli is the main Christian Orthodox Cathedral in Georgia, built in 1010-1029. It was built on the site of the demolished 4th century Twelve Apostles Church. Legend connected with the church says that Elioz, a citizen of Mtskheta, found the Tunic of Christ in Jerusalem. Elioz's sister Sidonia died when she touched the tunic. She was wrapped and buried in it. A cedar tree grew on Sidonia's grave, but the King Mirian decided to build a temple there and the cedar was cut down. Seven columns were carved from the tree. Six columns were put in place but the seventh began hovering in mid-air. Saint Nino prayed all night until the column began excreting holy ointment. The miraculous chrism cured patients of severe illness - hence the name Svetitskhoveli which means “the Life-Giving Pillar”.
