Ptghni Church

The Ptghni Church or Ptghnavank is located in Ptghni village in the Kotayk province. It is only 20 minutes from the center of Yerevan! It was built in the 6th-7th century and is one of the oldest and most important surviving example of a domed hall church seen in Armenia and served as a prototype for a large number of Armenian churches constructed after the 9th century. Unfortunately, it is very poor condition.
