    5) St. Gregory the Illuminator's Church
    St. Gregory the Illuminator's Church is a former Armenian Apostolic church in downtown Baku. It was built in 1887 and survived through the radical atheist age of Sovietization, and the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh.

    Unlike many places of worship that were subject to demolition throughout the Soviet Union in the 1920s and the 1930s, St. Gregory the Illuminator's Church was the only Armenian church that was not demolished. In 1990, during the exodus and deportation of the entire Armenian population from Azerbaijan, the church was closed down and damaged, and is no longer open to the public.

    From 1990 until 2002, its future status remained undetermined. In 2002, the church building underwent renovation and the final decision was made, that its cease of existence as a church is permanent, and the building was taken over by the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan to be used as one of its libraries. According to the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan which now owns the building, the former Armenian Church is not intended to be a place of worship again and the cross was removed from the dome of the church. The repair works were carried out for this purpose. And the library of the former church consisting of 5,000 books and manuscripts which has been preserved, was transformed into the archive department of the Department of Administration Affairs of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan.
