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.

  • In polychnasto Street, Mashtots with many stops for flowers and housewives who sell vegetables from their garden, a tasteful facade se΄΄anagkazei΄΄na stop. Must go inside, where there is a neat courtyard with benches and at deep blue Mosque. A map at the entrance to inform about the places you will be visiting. Had no world, when the episkefthikame Sunday morning. But the entry covered with nylon. Is nice place once had bloom and trees.

  • The only mosque in Yerevan, a kind of sign of friendship and trust between Armenia and Iran, the cultural center of the Iranian community in Armenia. Inside there is a small Museum next to the mosque there is a gift shop where you can buy souvenirs of the Iranian culture. Mosque architecture, unusual, there is something to see. Recommend, do not pass by!

  • The place is nice. Beautiful design but too abandoned it couod be much better.
  • Great opportunity to visit mosque for not muslims. Unfortunately was open only yard, and we didn't meet any person inside. Worse to visit it any way.
  • Although the mosque is on the Mashtot Avenue, the main street of Yerevan, it's not too obvious from outside. The main prayer room is inside the complex. But we can see the beautiful facade of the gate. Unfortunately, we came not during the opening hours, so we cannot enter the main praying room. But we still could strolling the courtyard and see photos in the museum.
  • Unappealing deserted mosque. One of the most plain religious buildings I have ever seen. Avoid it unless you are a Muslim.
  • To all the complaining Azeris here, arguing about who's meat this mosque is, please stop. This is a symbol of culture in Armenia, and the ethnic groups and populations of Armenia. Learn to live in piece with these pieces of architecture, like our Armenian churches on valleys in your land. Yes, it is a symbol of islaic art, seen all over the middle east, and islamic countries, including Iran and Azerbaijan. No need to hog over what is what. Anyways, considering Armenia is a Christian country. an interesting monument to see if near the mosque. However, much more beautiful mosques seen in other places. Not worth it if youre 10 miles away, but, if youre close, how about giving it a try?
