The Blue Mosque, the only still intact Mosque in Armenia, not far from the city center, built around 1750 century. Note that Armenia was under Muslim and Iranian (Persian) rule from around 1400 until it fell to Russia in 1827. In the treaty of Berlin in 1878 it was divided into a Russian part and an Osmanic (Turkish) part.
