The gorgeous Armenian Church in Isfahan also known the Church of the Saintly Sisters, calked Vank which means “monastery” or “convent” in the Armenian language.
The interior is covered with fine frescos and gilded carvings . The delicately blue and gold painted central dome depicts the Biblical story of the creation of the world and man’s expulsion from Eden.
I had spent a whole day in Isfahan last year and seen so much beauty, yet the richly decorated interior of the Armenian Church took my breath away.
I couldn’t do justice to its beauty with my iPhone. So this is just a sample.
