  • We visited this picturesque church hidden in the remote countryside. Apparently soldiers used to visit this church to be blessed before heading of to battle.  more »
  • In the village of Yeghegis there are three churches: two, on this site, there is no trace, which is unfortunate, because the thirteenth Surp Karapet is the most authentic and evocative and preserves some notable vintage ornaments, and the third, which unfortunately can not remember the name Despite being in ruins, has some worked stones of the 10th-12th century very considerable, including one with a curious depiction of a Saint or Angel playing a musical instrument, a horse and other figures, is really beautiful (and it is absurd to leave it exposed to bad weather and do not expose it to a Museum). Despite its particular aspects-such as the existence of only the apse and space overlooking used to bless the Knights before battles-, Surp Zorats doesn't have the same charm, because it was largely (commendably) rebuilt. However, those arriving here would do well to seek out and visit all these places of worship.
