Photographer's Note

My previous post was inaccurate. Here a panoramic view of the area. View of Anna Church (right) and Katoghike Church (
being renovated, left)

A new religious complex was constructed to the north of the Katoghike Church. The new complex includes a much bigger church, named after Saint Anna, and a building designated to serve as the Yerevan residence of the Catholicos. On July 4, 2009, a ground blessing service was conducted by Catholicos Karekin II for the construction of Saint Anna Church and the associated complex. The ceremony was attended by President Serzh Sargsyan; President of the Constitutional Court, Gagik Harutyunian; Mayor of Yerevan, Gagik Beglarian; Members of the Brotherhood of Holy Etchmiadzin, Members of the Supreme Spiritual Council national and benefactors Hirair Hovnanian and his wife. The architect is Vahagn Movsisyan.

Finally, on 30 April 2015, the Saint Anna Church was consecrated by Catholicos Karekin II.
