Stephen Gregory Church is located east of Ecbatana, the old Armenian district. This church has been built by a number of the Armenians of Isfahan, as well as the immigrants to this district and the Armenian merchants of Russia who took residence in Hamadan, in 1676 A.D. These immigrants took refuge in Iran’s western cities, such as Kermanshah and Hamadan, from areas of western Armenia, during World War I.

There are four circular columns at the entrance of the church, which are connected to each other by means of broken arches. Around the altar of the church also used to be covered with plaster, which is currently removed. The inner façade of the church is made of brick. In the outer façade, adobe is used, and it has arcades with crescent arches for ornament. The bell tower of the church is constructed in a circular way, in the manner of conical domes.
