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.
