Spitakavor Church Ashtarak

The 5th century Spitakavor Church literally means white-colored church.
It is a triple-aisled basilica, and it was most-likely renovated in the 6th century.
There is not a foundation inscription, but evidence indicating a date for the construction of the church include the archaic T-shaped piers, the arches of the nave, and the two pilasters that survive at the north wall. Traces of an earlier 5th century structure in the construction details have also been found.
