The Armenians live in Dumbrăveni from the middle of the 17th century. Under a privilege granted by Mihai Apafi I, they were colonized at Dumbrăveni. From 1733 the Armenians obtained privileged status, and in 1786 Dumbrăveni became a royal city.

The settlement administered by the Armenian settlers had the right to stand trial, autonomous rights, they could choose priests, mayors, they were entitled to weekly fairs and three country fairs. They built a bridge across Tarnavas and collected customs.

The first church was built in 1725, and half a century later in 1766-1791 the present cathedral. The missing tower was demolished by a storm in 1927.
