  • Another beautiful Armenian church of the end of the thirteenth century. It is appreciated above all for the slender shape that ends in a dome lightened by the fact of being supported by columns. Also beautiful is the décor of carved facades. Worthwhile to visit when you are to see the nearby monasteries from which it is about ten kilometers.

  • The Church of the Virgin was built in 1321. For the millennium of the adoption of Christianity by Armenia, several times restored. Located in the center of the city of Egguard. This church is two-storey, as well as the Church of Surb Astvatsatsin in Noravanke, the truth here is not preserved stone staircase leading to the second floor. The Church of Eguarda is one of the best preserved. Around the well-groomed square with benches and khachkars. On the first floor there is a tomb, on the second-a memorial temple. Stone console steps are made only at the entrance to the second floor-they were put on a wooden staircase. Dome of the church is conical, supported by 12 columns. The walls of the church are distinguished by exceptional richness of decorative finishes. One of the peculiarities of decoration is a belt above the columns of the Rotunda, which presents a palm tree, a rabbit, a leopard, a wolf, a chamois, a snake, a deer, a duck, etc., as well as a coat of arms of princes.
