Blue Mosque (Persian Mosque), Yerevan

4.0
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.

    Once in Yerevan was 9 mosques, at this time, remained the only one. The more it is worth to see it-if only because of the architecture and the colors. As the mosque is under the care of the Government of Iran can be a little bit feel there as if it was in the country. (by going to the mosque and leave with bags, backpacks, etc., and of course dress code is required, particularly in the case of women).

    There are probably prettier mosques in Iran, but this is by far the coolest-looking mosque in Armenia.The leafy courtyard is quite peaceful.

    Very beautiful and peaceful place. Not that impressive if you have seen some great mosques, but worth the visit if you're nearby

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.
