Vank Cathedral

In Jolfa area(where most of Armenians of the city are living) we have nine churches the most important of which is called Vank or Armena Perkich cathedral constructed in the Safavid dynasty 1664 AD.

The beautiful wall painting including flowers,trees and also the life of Jesus,the holy,and the interesting tile workings have all made this church as one the most glorious and beautiful churches of the city.In the yard of the church we can also see tombs of some Armenian martyrs and bishops.

Meanwhile there is also an interesting museum beside this church making it of more importance.In this museum there are antiques including customers of Armenian ladies,old bibles and weapons of four centuries ago.It is a two floored museum and one of the most important museum of the city.
