Standing atop a cliff overlooking the Hrazdan River and facing the ruins of the 16th-century Erivan Fortress, Saint Sarkis Cathedral serves as a popular visiting spot for Yerevan residents. Watch locals coming here to pray and light candles in this orange tufa stone building, which features elaborate carvings along its entrance arches and above its doors. With the present building constructed between 1835 and 1842 on the site of an earlier church, the cathedral also houses the seat of the Araratian Pontifical Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church. The cathedral’s neo-classical interior features a number of icon paintings. Plan to see Saint Sarkis Cathedral and other attractions that appeal to you using our Yerevan vacation planner.
