Thanks to this explanation one can understand why the solid and stocky shape of the building-or rather, what remains. If you make an effort of imagination, you can settle for quick look thrown on Tsiranavor Church. Come here especially doesn't make sense.
The church lies in ruins... You can easily see that it used to be a huge one. It is still impressive. It will be more interesting if renovated! You can have a good view over the river Kasagh and the bridge over it.
Tsiranavor (meaning apricot hue) church in Ashtarak was probably built in V century by the order of Nerses II Bagrevandtsi Catholicos.
