Grigor Lusavorich cathedral
Modern Yerevan’s first real cathedral was built to celebrate 1700 years of Christianity in Armenia and was consecrated in 2001. This hulking building stands on a small hill where Khandjian Poghots meets Tigran Mets Poghota. It’s a bit brutalist in execution, possibly because it hasn’t been around for 1000 years and collected age, atmosphere and khatchkars. Stairs leading up from Tigran Mets Poghota point straight at the carbuncle of the Kino Rossiya building across the street. There’s a statue of Zoravar Andranik at the bottom of the stairs. General Andranik Ozanian led the army that defeated the Turks at Sardarapat in May 1918.
