Armenian priest. An Armenian priest with a veghar waits in front of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the christian quarter of the sacred Old City of Jerusalem.
A veghar is the pointed conical cowl part of a full-length garment, cassock or robe, worn by the celibate clergy of the Armenian Apostolic Church.
The Armenian Quarter is one of the four quarters of the walled Old City of Jerusalem, although Armenians consider their quarter to be part of the Christian Quarter. Located in the southwestern corner of the Old City, it can be accessed through the Zion Gate and Jaffa Gate. The Armenian Quarter is separated from the Christian Quarter by David Street (Suq el-Bazaar) and from the Jewish Quarter by Habad Street (Suq el-Husur).
