                        Etchmiadzin Cathedral is apparently considered by the Armenian Apostolic Church to be the oldest cathedral in the world and as such is their administrative head quarters and a popular pilgrimage location. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is thought to have been originally built in the early fourth century, though renovated a number of times. Indeed, even after visiting many other monasteries in the area, this is different in both the design and the atmosphere.
