Saint Nino is the Equal to Apostils and she is the Enlightener of Georgia. St. Nino preached the Christianity in Georgia.

According to most widely traditional accounts, she belonged to a Greek-speaking Roman family from Kolastra, Cappadocia was a relative of Saint George and came to Georgia from Constantinople. According to legend, she performed miraculous healings and converted the Georgian queen, Nana, and eventually the pagan king Mirian III, who, lost in darkness and blinded on a hunting trip, found his way only after he prayed to "Nino's God". Mirian declared Christianity the official religion (c. 327) and Nino continued her missionary activities among Georgians until her death.

Her tomb is still shown at the Bodbe Monastery in Kakheti , eastern Georgia. St. Nino has become one of the most venerated saints of the in Georgian Orthodox Church and her attribute, a Grapevine cross, is a symbol of Georgian Christianity.
