This church was closed down by Stalin in 1937 but re-opened later during his rule in 1951, at the insistence of the then Armenian Patriarch Vazgen I. The distinct golden dome-and-white walls combination are striking, and the fact that the church central place of worship for Russia's Armenian community gives the interior a distinct air. The famous Lazarev's Chapel (which was constructed in 1815 by the wealthy Moscow Armenian Lazarev family) forms part of the church's buildings. Services are held on Sundays at noon.
