Surp Gayane Church nearby is a church built over the grave of St. Hripsime. It's a rather plain looking Church otherwise with the usual cross stones and grave stones surrounding the church grounds.

People mostly focus on the gigantic UNESCO heritage site- Ejmiatsin Cathedral and it's massive complex. But I looked and walked around the cemetery and found this church right across the old crypts. This church is also the burial site of several important ancient people. You...More

Beautiful small church with interesting history. It has a beautiful interior and a small crypt area to pay your respects to the saint. Good historic explanation board also in English. There were only a few visitors in a lovely peaceful place. No entry fee.

We visited this church as part of visit to Vagharshapat. Located in peaceful lush gardens with Mt. Ararat in view, it is very tranquil. The interesting twist to it is that I've seen 2 nuns that are apparently living on the premises. Worth stopping by
