Cantour Church – Qazvin

Cantour Church known as “Bell Tower” was built by Russians in Qazvin during the Second World War when Iran was conquered by Russians.

Like other churches, this small church is in cruciform and its altar faces the east. The bell tower is above it with about eleven meters height. The hall includes a praying room and an altar and there are two rectangular sections on its both sides. There are graves of Russians in its yard.

The church has a totally different architecture than other buildings in Qazvin due to its irregular polygon, the red brick façade, glazed bricks and decorative geometrical forms.
