The architectural style of this two story building is a combination of Eastern and Western forms. Building, itself, bears a truly Persian character and its interior, ornamented with numerous murals (depicting the life of Jesus Christ) and plaster moulding, illustrates the influence of Italian Renaissance.

This edifice is a dependency of Armenian Cathedral of Isfahan, which houses a variety of items worth viewing, including "The Order of Safavid Kings", granting Armenians religious freedom, and a manuscript dating from the 10th. century A.D.
