Tigranakert of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) Republic is a ruined of the Hellenistic period. It is one of four former cities with the same name, named in honor of the Armenian king Tigranes the Great ( 140-55 B.C.), and, apparently constructed by the latter. While the city...More

The Museum in Tigranakert is an interesting place. The fortress is a nice reconstructed building. Unfortunately, the staff was not able to speak in English. Also, many of the explanations in the exhibition in the fortress were in Armenian only. This made it impossible to...More

Beautiful place, among the nature. There is a nice museum, a beautiful fortress and the ruins of a very ancient church. The guide speaks a great english and can tell you a lot about this place and whatever you want to know.

Really old and quite abandoned place. Far from being a prominent tourist location. The temple is historic tribute to the ancient Armenian king Tigran and the residents living there over the centuries. There is a small paid museum with some really antique artifacts in the...More

I absolutely recommend that if you made the trip this far to make sure and climb up the mountain where you will find the foundation of the ancient city of Tigranakert built by an Armenian king. The ruins are 2,000 years old!

It is not in Azerbaijan. It is in the independent Armenian Nagorno Karabakh Republic. Hope TripAdvisor will fix the location info.
