All Images

Century of Foundation: IX Date of Foundation: 874 Region: Gegharkunik Location: Sevan Peninsula On the Peninsula of Lake Sevan, two cross-shaped churches dating from 874 typify the Armenian architectural Renaissance following almost two centuries of Arab oppression. The remains of a 10th-11th century domed hall are of interest, as is the gavit (canopy) of the church of the Apostles renowned for its unique wooden capitals, now displayed at the State Museum of Armenian History. The Museum also houses the beautifully carved doors of the Sevan monastery, dating back to the 12th and 16th centuries, along with a stone relief.
