Zvartnots (Armavir region)

Zvartnots Cathedral is a 7th-century centrally planned aisled tetra-conch type Arme-nian cathedral built by the order of catholicos Nerses the Builder from 643-652. Zvartnots remained standing until the end of the tenth century, but historical sources are silent as to the cause of its collapse. The ruins of Zvartnots remained buried until its remains were uncovered at the start of the twentieth century.
