What are the numbers and averages?
|Saint Gregory the Illuminator Cathedral is a very new place of worship, completed in 2001. It is reportedly the largest Armenian cathedral and it is indeed a dominating sight. It apparently houses the remains of St George, as well as other historical relics. The inside is spacious and rather plain, but the outside architecture is quite impressive – pretty even on a clear day.|
