Our destination is Jolfa, a city located in Azerbaijan Province in Iran, which shares borders with Armenia and the Republic of Azerbaijan. Due to this significant position, it has turned into an outstanding business city. In Jolfa, you can find many historical churches as it’s been a residential area for Christian Armenians. Let’s have a look at St. Stepanos church, which is surrounded by stone fences, located among several trees and vivacious hills.
The construction architecture dates back to the 10th century. You will be amazed by the high reliefs, high arches and astonishing decoration of this beautiful church. Next, let’s move to the Chupan (shepherd) church, placed in the west.
Based on sayings, it was a place for Armenian shepherds to pray. The church has a cross-shaped plan and the material used in its construction are stone and cement. The internal walls are covered by plaster and it has two small domes with four wind catchers.
Our latter stop is the Khajeh Nazar historical caravanserai which dates back to the Safavid era and is located beside Aras River and Zia Al Molk Bridge. As Jean-Baptiste Tavernier, the French explorer says the caravanserai was built by an Armenian authority in the time of Shah Abbas. The caravanserai’s plan is rectangular and the construction materials are stones and bricks. When you enter the place, you can observe a central yard with three porches on the sides. Ceilings are arched-shaped and there are internal aisles for accessing different rooms.
As we mentioned, Jolfa is a crucial business city, so let’s not miss visiting shopping centers on the border which are widely developing day by day. After some time strolling in these interesting bazaars, we will drive you along Aras Riverside, where we can watch the roaring river and enjoy the scenic flourish hills. You may see people fishing or meditating in pure nature. We will head to the ‘Asiab Kharabe’ waterfall which has made an awesome landscape in the area. There are mossy strings and even some branches hanging from the waterfall and it divides into many small and big waterfalls in the lower part.
All in all, Jolfa is a historical city with lots of natural attractions and during this trip, you will have a very joyful educational time.
