Beating heart of Persian history

Hamadan: Beating heart of Persian history
Featuring a long civilization history and a rich culture, Iran has played an important role in the development of human civilization. Hamedan, as the first Iranian capital city after the arrival of Aryans, has borne a heavy burden of responsibility in this regard. Hamedan has been the context of many historical events since thousands of years ago, and this historical continuity can be clearly observed in the valuable monuments of prehistoric to the contemporary age, available in this province.

Iranian Armenian Churches
The firstĀ Armenian churches in Iran were built starting from the 4th-5th centuries A.D. They were based on a simple, or hypostyle basilica plan. In general, the basilica church included a long hall which stretched from east to west. The entrance to the church was on the western side, and an altar with flanking ambries was located on the eastern side, Gradually, these simple churches were extended on four sides by adding arcades and terraces along their outer walls.
