The holy city of the Armenian Apostolic Church is located in a town called Echmiadzin located just outside the capital city, Yerevan. It’s here that the catholicos resides as the leader of the church. For the sake of comparison, Armenians recognize him as a pope-like figure and Echmiadzin as a kind of Vatican. We made our first visit to this city and immediately realized how much we had to learn about the Armenian church. The central cathedral is located here as well as the seminary which trains priests for the ministry. Here are few pictures by way of introduction.
