Due to location of Ardabil in silk route, from a long time ago this city was the place of commitment of merchants and tourists with different religion. But the relation of this city to Christianity dates back to very long eras.
Ardabil church has been constructed in 1876 AD. This building was constructed by expense of Galvest Mirzaeian and efforts of Khajatur Shahbazian.
This church with oldness of two centuries has been active till 1944 AD and the last rituals and congregational prayer have been done in 1944 AD by priest Vartan Jamagorsian. From this date on, due to migrations of Armenia families to Tabriz and Tehran, doing rituals have been cancelled in this church. Now, belongings of this church including bath and school has been destroyed totally and its building has been abandoned and ruined.
