Armenia24 Ruins of Zvartnots Cathedral1

(1 vote)

Armenia, officially the Republic of Armenia, is a landlocked country in the Armenian Highlands of Western Asia. While Armenia is geographically located in the South Caucasus, it is generally considered geopolitically European.

Zvartnots Cathedral (meaning "celestial angels”) is a 7th-century centrally planned aisled tetraconch type Armenian cathedral built by the order of Catholicos Nerses the Builder from 643-652. Now in ruins, it is located at the edge of the city of Vagharshapat (Etchmiadzin). Zvartnots was built at a time when much of Armenia was under Byzantine control or influence and during the early invasions of Armenia by the Muslim Arabs. Dedicated to St. Gregory, it was located the place, where a meeting between King Trdat IIIand Gregory the Illuminator was supposed to have taken place. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
