Main temple of Armenian Apostolic church.
Etchmiadzin Cathedral is the throne of the Supreme Patriarch of the Catholicos of All Armenians and one of the oldest Christian churches in the world. The history of Etchmiadzin is the history of Christianity in Armenia (Armenia is the first state in the world to accept Christianity in 301 as a state religion). It was built in 303 on the spot where Christ appeared to St. Gregory the Illuminator. In memory of this the cathedral was called Echmiadzin ("The only God's son came down.")
Museum-treasury at the Cathedral is certainly worth visiting.
Обязательно зайдите в музей-сокровищницу при соборе. Там хранятся святые мощи и много уникальных предметов- очень впечатляет. Музей работает каждый день кроме понедельника с 10.30 до 19.30, в воскресенье - с 14.00-16.30.
