Blue Mosque (Persian Mosque), Yerevan

(150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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!
  • An ordinary looking mosque. There are more beautiful mosques in the Middle East. Not worth joining a tour for it. You can walk there on your own.
