The Island of Hormozgan

The "black church" near Maku; Although the church is very white and known by most people visiting Iran, the scene pictured below is at the end of June each year. At this time of year Armenian pilgrims visit the church to honor the Christian desiple "Sr. Thaddaeus" who is buried here. Three days of the year the scene around the church is as pictured below. Most remarkable is that Muslims are not allowed at the church during these 3 days. Also women won't wear a scarf during the festivities.
Mr. Hossein can arrange transportation to reach the somewhat remotely located church.

Murat camping in Dogubajazit; A place which has almost become a travellers hub for people visiting Iran. Closely located near Iran and situated in a volcanic landscape under the scenic Sultan palace. The place also can be used to climb the nearby mountain "Ararat", 5137 meters high. You can contact Mr. Hossein from this camping. The brothers Murat can help you contacting Mr. Hossein.
