A visit to the Blue Mosque gives you an interesting insight into the multicultural nature of Yerevan. Although Armenia is the world's oldest Christian nation, and the majority of the people are Orthodox Christian, neighbouring Iran has long held influence over the region, and in the 18th century, this beautiful Blue Mosque was constructed in the city. Today there are a huge number of expatriate Iranians in Yerevan, and this is the place where many choose to pray.

What you see today is the newly built mosque, funded by Iran in the late 90s. There used to be a mosque on this side, but just like any religious venues, it was destroyed during the Soviet rule. Blue Mosque is the only functioning mosque in Yerevan. The exterior is decorated with tiles. The interior is more modest and features tiled dome, small minaret, and a garden with flower beds and fountains. Do note that visitors are expected to dress appropriately - no bare shoulders or legs, while women should wear a scarf.
