Travel Photo: Vank Cathedral, Isfahan, Iran

Good Friday to you all!

On this day, all churches will have prayers and service, but if there is one place where I would like to be on this day, it has to be Vank Cathedral at Isfahan in Iran. This Armenian Church in Central Iran is one of the best churches that I have visited and the murals and the detailed work in its main chamber is something totally special. Right from the birth of Christ to his crucifixion on this day (Good Friday) and his 33 year long life is all portrayed here beautifully.

It is a great place to understand the religion, appreciate our earth’s rich history and simply admire the handiwork of these artisans. Let’s see if you can figure out any of the stories from Christianity here. Do you want to take a shot?
