The Blue Mosque is an 18th-century Shia mosque in Yerevan, Armenia. It was commissioned by Huseyn Ali Khan, the khan of the Iranian Erivan Khanate. It is one of the oldest extant structures in central Yerevan and the most significant structure from the city's Iranian period. It was the largest of the eight mosques of Yerevan in the 19th century and is today the only active mosque in Armenia.
The mosque was secularized in the 1920s and housed the History Museum of Yerevan for more than five decades. Following Armenia's independence, the mosque was renovated with the support from the Iranian government and again started operating as a mosque, serving the Iranians residing in Yerevan.

This is the only mosque in Yerevan and it is done in Iranian/Persian style. It is open to the public to walk around inside and take pictures.

Shame on you, Armenia. Why did you need you hide the facts? You are presenting this mosque as an Iranian mosque, while it is a mosque built by order of Huseyn Ali Khan who was Azerbaijani by origin from Erevan Khanate, there were more than a million of Azerbaijani turks in Erevan and that is how this mosque was built. It was one of 8 mosques in Erevan for Azerbaijani turks. And those 7 mosques are already destroyed.

Great opportunity to visit mosque for not muslims. Unfortunately was open only yard, and we didn't meet any person inside. Worse to visit it any way.

For all the Azeri who complain on this forum, it's a nice Mosk in the centre of Yerevan... The origin of the mosk is not being hidden.. Azerbedjan did not exist when the mosk was build... you can say it was build by an Azeri, but the truth is it was build by Shia imam (if am not wrong) But ask yourself... .. How many Armenian churches remain in Baku.. On top of that there might be old churches in Ankara but you won't find any of them with a cross on it or being used...

Wow Azad khan, how can there be “more than million Azeri Turks in Yerevan if the population of Yerevan is million. Think with your “brain”.
