Saghmosavank church in Aragatsotn region of Armenia

Yerevan- Saghmosavank is a 13-th century Armenian Apostolic church in Aragatsotn region of Armenia, 34 km from Yerevan.

 

It is situated atop the precipitous gorge carved by Kasakh river. 

 

The main structures of the monasteries erected by Prince Vache Vachutyan—the Church of Zion in Saghmosavank (1215) and the Church of Karapet in Hovhannavank (1216-1221)—belong to the same type of cross-winged domed structure with two-floor annexes in all the corners of the building.
