Blue Mosque (Persian Mosque), Yerevan

(3.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This is an old fashioned mosque which is located in a good place in Yerevan. I suppose it can be interesting for those who have not seen such architecture.  more »
  • It is "the only" mosque in Yerevan,still being renewed. If you have seen mosques before,there is nothing special there to see. If you have spare time, and walking around the city,check it out.  more »

  • Shia mosque which was used by Azerbaijanian prayers. Most of old places in the town which were connected with Azerbaijanians were demolished.
  • Beautiful building and very calm place to bring someone for a date or just to hang out and read. Quiet, despite the proximity of Mashtots. Other than a quiet beautiful place, not much to see, but, still, easily a must see in Yerevan. Considering Armenia is a Christian country, this mosque is wonderfully maintained.
  • The mosque is great! The Muslims who visit this place are very hospitable, kind and are eager to answer your questions!
  • 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.
  • I was just visiting there as the only left mosque in the city. But one day I met a woman who told me about the mosque, it's history and she showed me the gallery. I was really surprised. If you go here find someone to tell you the history and how they use the environment.
