Create an itinerary including Blue Mosque (Persian Mosque)
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.

  • A Canadian Tourist Review: It's great for that quick 15 to 20 minute visit. Very small courtyard that you can easily walk around in under five minutes. We peered inside the mosque too. Please note men and women must enter through separate entrances. It's not a must-visit, but it is cool to see given it's the only mosque in Yerevan.
  • A beautiful Iranian mosque, opens for praying times and a separate time for visiting.
