Therefore prepare yourself and arise, and speak to them all that I command you. Do not be dismayed before their faces, Lest I dismay you before them.  For behold, I have made you this day a fortified city and an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land...

Yes, it's in Yerevan. One of those photos shows the stone reliquary where St Gregory's small relic is placed. Usually believers after entering the church first kneel and kiss it, then move to the nave. The lamp hanging over that relic was a gift by the late Russian Orthodox Patriarch, as one can read on the lamp.
