Etchmiadzin Cathedral

by Karagusi


Built between 301 and 303 AD, Etchmiadzin is one of the oldest cathedrals in the world, and the mother church of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Located in the Armavir province of Armenia, Etchmiadzin was built over a former pagan temple, following the adoption of Christianity as a state religion, symbolizing the conversion from paganism to Christianity.

This iconic cathedral serves as one of Armenia’s most significant architectural models. With various additions and restorations, this building features Armenian architecture of different periods. Despite these various renovations, however, it retains the original form of the building with extraordinary geometric and floral patterns, medallions, saints, and impressive arcades.

In 2000 the cathedral was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
