Noratus Cemetery

The Noratus Cemetery is home to over 800 khachkars carved between the 9th-17th centuries. This was the second largest cemetery of Armenian khachkars until the largest at Jugha (Nakhichevan), which contained over 10,000, was systematically destroyed by Azerbaijan from 1998-2005. From the 9th-10th century primitive beginnings, all the way though the 13th-16th centuries during the height of the craft, you will see a great variety of khachkars from different time periods.
