All Images

Century of Foundation: X Region: Shirak Location: Vahramaberd village The impressive monastery of Marmashen is located in the Northwest of Gyumri. This complex sits on a picturesque shelf with fruit trees above the Akhurian River beside a stream that ends in a waterfall. The Katoghike Church of Saint Stepanos was built by Vahram Pahlavuni, whose gravestone is in the ruins of a gavit dating back to 988-1029. The gavit itself is 13th century. Astvatsatsin Church and St. Petros Church are side by side with remnants of a fourth, nearly circular church, along with foundations of a pre-Christian temple and many service buildings. The complex was destroyed by the Seljuk Turks and rebuilt by Vahram’s grandsons.
