Doulab Cemetery is a Catholic cemetery on the outskirts of Tehran, which contains the graves of known figures as well as strangers.

The wooden door of this cemetery, run by France, Italy and Poland residents, opens to a spectacular garden. Most graves are old and the nationality of the deceased is marked with a flag.

The cemetery and the church nearby, show that the neighborhood used to host Armenian Catholics not long ago.

Due to the fact that the Armenian monastery is owned by Russia, Poland, France and Italy, and permission is required from all embassies, it is a bit difficult for public to visit the monastery; however, it is not impossible.
