All Images

Century of Foundation: VII Date of Foundation: 630 Region: Armavir Location: Echmiadzin The Church of St. Gayane was built in Echmiadzin by the order of the Catholicos Yezr in 630, according to the contemporary author Sebaeos. The church’s construction and décor (squinch sub-dome transition, window carvings, ledges and plat bands, entrances, mason’s marks, etc.) bear the distinguishing features of slender and delicate proportions and an upward sweep in design, all of which remained unchanged in spite of the partial 17th century re-building of the dome and of some ceilings.
