Very important and religiously significant, Etchmiadzin Cathedral stands out because of its construction and aura. Located in Armenia, it is known as the mother church of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Considered to be the oldest church in the world, it dates back to the 4th century. Every country has gone through difficulties, and during such time in Armenia, the church was left abandoned and ignored. While this has not had any catastrophic effect on the building, its diminished beauty was a concern. Refurbished later, today the church glows with its new found glory. The architecture is very different from any other usual church. A tiny piece of fortification, this structure includes a cupola, freestanding piers, projecting apses and more. While in the city, you must visit this church and honour its history and legends.
