בית העם הטמפלרי
נבנה בשנת 1882 כאולם התכנסות ותפילה של הקהילה הטמפלרית. באולם התקיימה הפעילות התרבותית שכללה קונצרטים והצגות. הטמפלרים, שכפרו בפולחן הנוצרי-פרוטסטנטי, הקימו בתי קהילה ולא כנסיות. בתקופה מאוחרת יותר שימש המבנה בית תפילה לקהילה הארמנית.

Built in 1882 as a gathering and prayer hall of the Templar community. The hall hosted cultural activities that included concerts and performances. The Templars, who atoned for Christian-Protestant worship, established community houses rather than churches. In a later period the building served as a house of prayer for the Armenian community.
