Jerusalem is the ONLY place today where authentic Armenian ancient heritage pottery is still being created. The first Armenian pilgrims arrived to Jerusalem around 300 AD when they adopted Christianity, making them the first immigrant Christians to establish their presence in Jerusalem. The Armenian potters of Jerusalem are continuing this ancient heritage begun by their ancestors.
