St. Astvatsatsin Church Kanaker

The St. Astvatsatsin Church is located in the Kanaker District of Yerevan.
The original church was mostly destroyed during the 1679 Yerevan Earthquake, but unlike its sister church St. Hakob, was not rebuilt until 16 years later in 1695. The building of the church was sponsored by local residents. Architecturally the church is virtually identical to the St. Hakob church. It is a three-nave dome-less basilica built from orange and black tuff stone with a small cupola on top of the gabled roof.
