Arshakid Kings Mausoleum and Basilica
In the ancient village of Aghdzk is the Arshakid Kings Mausoleum and Basilica which has a major significance in the time period of the Kingdom of Armenia, specifically of the Ashakid Dynasty which ruled from 12 AD to 428 AD. Constructed in the mid-late 4th century, the mausoleum at one point housed the remains of the Arshakuni kings until they were moved to Echmiadzin in the early 5th century due to earthquakes and invasions.
