not much to see here. Its a 7th century church. It is still an active place of worship so if you are interested it will give you some insight in how Armenian worship is different from the other flavors of Christianity.

Saint Hripsime Church is a from a later time. Yet it is a good proof of the Armenian spiritual culture.

Another Stunning church here in Armenia. You literally can see many everyday for a week straight and not see all of the great churches in Armenia. While not my favorite of all the churches here it is still well worth a visit.

This seventh century church is definitely worth a visit. It has a beautifull carved wooden and 18th century mother-of-pearly altarpiece. It is sometimes possible to see the underground crypt where Zoroastrian fire rituals were once performed.

St. Hripsime was slain here stoned to death when she refused to marry King Trdat III choosing to remain true to her faith. A chamber contains few of the rocks that were supposedly used to stone her to death.

This gem (finished in 618 AD) replaces the original mausoleum build at the end of the 4th century and which also replaces an even older Hellenistic temple. Under the church one can visit a narrow crypta (martyrium). Renovations took place during 19th and 20th century...More
