A view of the Avlabari district of Old Tbilisi. This was the old Armenian part of the city but the area is now dominated by the recently completed Sameba Cathedral of the Georgian Orthodox Church. There are around 85,000 Armenians in the city, though at one time it was home to many more. Some accounts suggest that Armenians made up 40% of the population in the nineteenth century.
