Grigor Lusavorich CathedralGrigor Lusavorich CathedralGrigor Lusavorich Cathedral - One of the biggest and amazing cathedrals in Armenia.

The Cathedral is the symbol of the 1700th anniversary of the proclamation of Christianity as a State Religion in Armenia and house for relics of St. Grigor (Gregory). Its construction was finished in 2001.

The huge Cathedral is a complex consisting of three churches: the Cathedral (Main Church) with 1700 seats and the Chapels of St. Tiridat (Tiridates) III the King and of St. Ashkhen the Queen (both with 150 seats). These two royal figures were the crucial helpers of St. Gregory in converting Armenia to Christianity. The belfry and the court are located at the entrance of the Cathedral. The halls for both the receptions and church-related activities are provided on the lower floor of the Main Church.

The consecration of the Cathedral - the symbol of the 1700th anniversary of the proclamation of Christianity as a state religion in Armenia - took place on September 23, 2001, and now, with its whole beauty and majesty, it is visible from the numerous corners of Yerevan.

The Holy Remains of St. Gregory the Illuminator were brought here from Italy. Shortly after the consecration of the Cathedral Pope John Paul II paid a visit to the Cathedral.
