Its calmness was fascinating.

Armenia is one of the earliest and the oldest countries adopted Christianity as a state religion. In fact in celebration of its 1700th anniversary of the proclamation of Christianity, they build the St Grigor Lusavorich cathedral as a tribute to St Gregory, the illuminator, who brought Christianity to Armenia.

One of things I observed in Armenian Churches that I visited was that, at the center of the altar was a picture of Virgin Mary Our Lady of Perpetual Help. In comparison to Roman Catholic Churches is that, at the center of the altar is the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and on the right side of the altar is Mother Mary. Later I found out that Armenia's Religious Demography shows that most of its population is embracing Orthodox Christianity thus they called it Armenian Apostolic Church.

Nice place. Very beautiful. At night it's very beautiful because of lights. It's not very big but it's not small. You can visit there and take pictures. You should go there if you go to Armenia.

It's a big church with beautiful architecture. It is located on a small hill so you should walk up about 100 steps to get to it. It is worth visiting.

Being in Yerevan from December 24th to 27th , It was among the landmarks I was willing to see. After passing some streets near my hotel, the giant building could be seen . we entered and sat on the table. after a while as though a celebration was launched. I was right; a wedding ceremony was about to start. I haven`t seen it before and it was really interesting to me .
