SANAHIN

The Monastery Complex was founded by Armenian King Ashot G. Voghormats in 966 CE. Sanahin got its name after the construction of Haghpat Monastery–meaning (“sa qan zna hin”). The monastery is one of the outstanding works of medieval Armenian architecture. The complex played significant role in spiritual and cultural life of Armenia. The monastery complex consists of religious and civil buildings reconstructed in 10-12th centuries- 3 churches, library-matenadaran, church-porch, fore-church, belfry, mausoleums, halls of religious schools and library. Outside the group of monuments there are located the source of the monastery, chapels, cross stones and a number of small churches with sculptured cross stones which are spread around the district and beyond it, as well as the popular bridge of Sanahin. Saint Astvatsatsin Church is one of the ancient buildings of the complex. After the construction of the church Sanahin became illuminative, scientific-educational center of the clergy of Lori, which had its seminary and matenadaran, then- university and academy.

ODZUN

Odzun Church is a basilica church constructed around the 5th-7th century in the Odzun village of the Lori Province.

The first church appeared here in the 6th century. In the 8th century it was reconstructed byHovhannes III Odznetsi who served as the katolikos between 717 and 728 and was, as his name suggests, from Odzun. There are numerous gravestones of the clergy around the church and a funerary monument. Its stepped platform supports two carved stelae between double arches. The east and west sides of the monument are carved with scenes from the Bible and introduction of Christianity in Armenia. Its north and south side are carved with geometrical motifs and floral shapes. It is suggested that this monument commemorates Hovhannes Odznetsi, but its style suggests that it was probably erected earlier, in the 6th century.
