Karmravor St. Astvatsatsin church is situated in Ashtarak city. It is a small building with harmonious proportionality. There is no evidence in the literary sources either. By its compositional solution and architectural details, it is a 7th century building. It is built of brown and red tufa stones. From inside the church is decorated with frescos, among which there are compositions of “Christ in Glory” and St. Horsemen with arm inscriptions depicted. The decorative ornamentation is restrained and is in harmony with architectural.

The fact that the church was not large (6×7.5 m), the simplicity of decoration assumed that this was a vault of princely family. It was also a nunnery monastery and functioned till 1813.
