The St. Alexander Nevsky Military Cathedral of Tiflis was erected to commemorate the Russian victory in the Caucasus War against the North Caucasus mountainous peoples and was named after the medieval Russian Saint Alexander Nevsky. It was initially sponsored by the high priest of the Caucasian Army Sergey Gumilevsky, Military Governor Count Sheremetev and Grand Duke Mikhail Nikolayevich. It was constructed during the Imperial Russian rule from 1871-1872 and 1889–1897 and demolished by the Soviet authorities in 1930.
