The Gregorian church of Stepanos in western Iran was built in 1676 by a group of Armenians who hailed from Isfahan and some Russian businessmen and immigrants based in Hamedan.

The church has now turned into a museum in Ecbatana [an ancient city in Media in western Iran].

The Orthodox church of Saint Mary, which was built after the construction of the Protestant church of Stepanos, is also located in eastern Ecbatana in a predominantly Armenian neighborhood of Hamedan.
