Blue Mosque (Persian Mosque), Yerevan

4.1
Step into the peaceful courtyard of Blue Mosque (Persian Mosque), and admire the building's ornate, Persian-style facade. Completed in the 18th century, the mosque was commissioned by Nadir Shah, a powerful Persian ruler. Its simple chambers and prayer hall contrast the exterior's intricate tile-work, vibrantly painted dome, and 24 m (79 ft) minaret. Wander among the roses of the tranquil mosque garden, and visit the small museum that details the building's history.

  • The Mosque built in 18th Century when Yerevan was ruled by Evrivan Khanate as part of Afsharid Empire of Iran , Located in Centre of Yerevan and renovated by the Iranian Embassy in Armenia .  more »
  • The only surviving mosque in the city, the beautiful blue dome of which is visible from all sides of the central street of Mashtots. Beautiful garden, unique structures in the Iranian style, with mosaic and vague ornaments. I advise you, it's a beautiful place.

  • An ancient and beautiful mosque in downtown of Yerevan. Lots of religious and cultural gatherings are held there and Muslims in Yerevan participate in to. Farsi ( Persian) and Armenian languages are taught in 2 classes every week in Blue Mosque.
  • A beautiful mosque in central Yerevan. The mosque is used by the Iranian community living in Yerevan. Seeing the mosque and the garden would take around 20-30 minutes. Also upon entering the yard, on the right side there is a very smal exhibition of the old Persian artifacts.Due to restoration, you won't be able to see inside the mosque. It would be good for the tourists to see this place to have a clear picture of the muslim congregation of Armenia.
