A service is held in Isfahan to mark the 350th anniversary of a very old place of worship.

A function was held in the predominantly Christian Jolfa neighborhood in Isfahan, central Iran on Monday to mark the 350th anniversary of the city’s Vank Cathedral. A senior Lebanese Christian cleric was on hand for the ceremony that brought together hundreds of the faithful.

We are honored to have lived with our Christian brothers for hundreds of years here in Isfahan,” said the provincial governor of Isfahan.
