Frescos of Vank Cathedral

The magnificent frescos depicting Biblical stories, inside the main prayer hall of Vank Cathedral (Holy Savior Cathedral, Church of the Saintly Sisters), a cathedral of the Armenian Apostolic Church, in Isfahan, Isfahan province of Iran.

Established in 1606, and dedicated to Armenian deportees resettled by Shah Abbas I during the Ottoman War, Vank cathedral is a gorgeous fusion of Armenian and Islamic architecture.

The main prayer hall is a vibrantly painted room of Armenian and Christian iconography and typical Islamic geometrical designs.
