Karmravor Church (Ashtarak)

Karmravor, meaning reddish hue, is located at Ashtarak on the northeast side of town. The exact date of the construction is not known. However, the architacture of the church indicates 7th century. Karmravor was founded by priests Gregory and Manas according to the dedicatory inscription starting from the south elevation and completed on the north wall.

As of present day, Karmravor remains in a good state of preservation. It has managed to retain its roofing of clay tiles which are laid in mortar. Most recent resoration work is noted as taking place in the 1950's.

Karmaravor is a very small domed church measuring 19 feet 7 inches by 24 feet 6 inches. This church belongs to a series of small churches built as free crosses. It has a horseshoe east apse which is rectangular on the exterior.
