Besides the merging of cultures such as Persian, Byzantine, Orthodox, and more, the skills of the designer and builders are phenomenal. This should be a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Well from th out side i's not looks good but inside it's an amazing place. I like the Saint coffin ,i guess it's made from gold.Well the 2 -nd thing which disliked me was the beggars,there are a lot. Maybe next time when i'll go there the beggars will dissapear.

They say that this 16th century church used to be coverd in gold in the old times. I don't know what happened to the gold, but still the church is unique in its design, with marvellous patterns carved in stone on the outside. Inside, one can listen to an exquisite male choir. A very nice place to visit.

I was very impressed with the mood the ancient church brought upon me and my 3 colleagues giving me a short walking tour of the downtown area.

This is a wonderful old church but it has been under renovations for the past few times that I visited. Even from the outside, it is a wonderful church.
