Iran Off The Beaten Path: 62 reviews and 94 photos
This is one of the most important Armenian Churches o Iran it is a few kilometers from Maku, on a arid but montanious landscape.
it is a good stop if you are crossing the BAZARGAN-DOGUBEYAZIT Iran-Turkish Border.
The church is fortified and there are pelegrinations once a year.
There is no Public transport to the church that is out of the main road so it's better to Bargain with a taxi driver to get there and wait for you during the visit.
Maku has some colonial buildings but nothing of interest but overnight before or after crossing the border. it is a few hours north-west of tabriz.
