Cathedral of Talin

Cathedral of Talin

The interior is expansive and solemn divided by vaulted arches. On the surface above the main altar there are two circular windows. The lateral altars are enclosed in semi-circular conches. There is one window in the central part of each conch. The interior walls still bear marks of the old frescoes. In the ni

ches adorned by columns and connecting arches ornamental patterns of plants and flowers can still be seen. Similar ornaments have been used on the cupola. The cathedral used to have five entrances with front doors.
