Blue Mosque (Persian Mosque), Yerevan

3.9
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.

  • Is at the beginning of Mashtots Avenue. Not very visible from the street, but it's worth to enter the courtyard, surprising beauty, traditions, the atmosphere. A small garden in the center of the courtyard, where you can relax and admire the mosque.

  • I had a vested interest in making this visit since the name of this mosque reminded me the wonderful mosque of the same name in the city of Istanbul. To reach it, the first thing which I call attention was that not being free of buildings do not you realize where you are, or you can admire it since among the buildings that surround it not noted, unless its minaret as he has twenty-five meters high so bresale. When you walk in the building and after getting off a small staircase you reach a peaceful garden that makes you isolate yourself from the hustle and bustle of cars and street. This mosque was built in the year 1,765 and today is the only one that is preserved in the city of Yerevan, during the Communist era was the seat of the Museum of the city and between 1995 and 2006 was rebuilt with Iranian funding. I really liked your dome which I imagine it will be, which gives the name given since it is a beautiful turquoise blue. This unit consisting of a library, the room's main prayer, the courtyard, a school, administrative offices, a conference room and various rooms. The entrance is free. I recommend sitting a while in one of the banks in your garden and enjoy the place.

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.
