Included in the half day Tehran tour an excursion to the Armenian Apostolic Cathedral of St Sarkis, Jewish Synagogue, Atashkadeh Adrian, Church of St Mary and Armenian Museum.


Important note for this tour:





Tehran has had a vibrant Zoroastrian, Armenian and Jewish community for more than 200 years. Zoroastrian is the oldest religious community of Iran and according to the official census, there were 25 thousand Zoroastrian within the country in 2011. Judaism is one of the oldest religions practiced in Iran and the Biblical Book of Esther contains references to the experiences of the Jews in Persia. Jews have had a continuous presence in Iran since the time of Cyrus the Great of the Achaemenid Empire. Armenians are mostly concentrated in Tabriz, Tehran and Isfahan's Jolfa quarter, and an estimated 70000 to 200000 remain in the country.

This excursion will be begun from visiting The Armenian Apostolic Cathedral of Saint Sarkis Cathedral, that is famous due to its beautiful paintings of Avedik Aivazyan. Later we visit the Jewish Synagogue and the Zoroastrian Fire Temple, Atashkadeh Adrian and finally we end the excursion by visiting the Armenian Church and Museum of St Mary.
