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.

  • Easy to identify in the center for its typical blue tiled dome as usual in Persian mosques. Built in the eighteenth century is the only active mosque in the country and the memory of the times of Persian domination. Pretty and interesting but nothing architecturally exceptional for those who saw those in Iran.

  • The corner of foreign culture in Yerevan looks very interesting. On the territory of the mosque there is a school for studying Persian language and several museum expositions. The cozy courtyard, inside the mosque is quiet and deserted. After the repair, which is now in full swing, will be even better.

  • This is an ordinary mosque (in my view of point) but you should see it because it has a beautiful architecture.  more »

  • 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.
  • Hidden inside the city center, but worth going to see the tile works inside.
  • One of the oldest Persian mosque during Qajar dynasty which was taken by force by Russia
  • Maybe not the most impressive Mosque in the world, but it still has its beauty, and a wonderful refuge from the hustle and bustle in the heart of Yerevan
