Blue Mosque (Persian Mosque), Yerevan

4.0
#8 of 83 in Sightseeing in Yerevan
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Very nice, especially the garden that anticipates and the ancient eighteenth-century minaret, located at the center of the city, of which stands the tiled Dome to strong blue tints. To see!

  • This is the only operating mosque in Yerevan. Beautiful mosque. Built by persians. Hidden, not easy to find.  more »
  • the mosque is very interesting. but, more importantly, why there is an urgent need to visit-it's communication with the repository library. Urgent visit-you will not regret

  • There are probably prettier mosques in Iran, but this is by far the coolest-looking mosque in Armenia.The leafy courtyard is quite peaceful.
  • Different architecture in Yerevan, sponsor for renew is islamic republic of iran( bonyad mostazafan)
  • Very beautiful and peaceful place. Not that impressive if you have seen some great mosques, but worth the visit if you're nearby
  • so quiet. so peaceful.
  • It is Azerbaijan's Mosque not Iranian! Iravan Khanate!Never part of Armenian's!

Where to stay in Yerevan

When it comes to accommodations in Yerevan, you'll find a number and a range befitting its status as the capital and most populous city in the country. Look in the Kentron (center) district, where by far the greatest number and best quality hotels can be found. Hotels in old Soviet blocks, grand former administrative buildings, or newly built high-rises offer standard to luxury rooms, along with a set of smaller hostels. With prices notoriously high for the region (and many visitors using Yerevan as a base from which to see the country), consider renting an apartment if staying for a longer period.
