The Armenian Catholic Church
Situated at Al-Ghazal Souq in Al-Khulafaa Street. Its construction started in 1840 and completed in 1844. At the beginning, it was called Church of Savior's mother, then Church of Assumption. This church was partly reconstructed in 1883 and had its altar and doors renovated.
When Abu Ja'far Al-Mansour built Baghdad in 762 AD, it was a round city, with walls and four gates at an angle of 90 degrees for defensive purposes. Main administrative and religious buildings were placed near the center for easy approach. Although the capital was abandoned for Samarra in AD 836, the Abbasids went back to it in AD 892, and the city continued to expand on both sides of the river. Al-Mustarshid Billah, was the first Caliph to build a wall on the eastern side of the city, which remained until late in the 19th century.
