Built at the 7th century over the ruins of a pagan temple, this is one of the oldest surving Christian churches in Armenia! It is consecrated to the cult of Saint Hripsime, a nun who suffered martyrdom together with 39 other martyrs. Her tomb can be visited in the catacomb below the main altar. The Church has been renovated along the centuries and offers moments of peace and prayer. Enjoy!

The nearest Church to Yerevan is located on the outskirts of Echmiadzin. Simple, strict and very soulful. Here you can just stand both inside and in the courtyard. Instead of luxury, stone is everywhere, which makes the Church unique

Lucky enough to be there where a service was on and a female soloist with a male choir had the most melodic voices. Created such a wonderful atmosphere. On the other hand we were unable to go and see the crypt. Cannot have everything in life! Beautiful dome within the church.

This church was included as part of Yerani travel tour to Echiamdzin. I'm glad we made the stop. The story of Hripsime is very sad but important one in the history of Armenia becoming first Christian nation in the world.

Built in the early 7th century in honour of the nun Hripsime, this church is a magnificent example of Armenian churches The nun's mausoleum is in a small room below the altar. There is a bell tower added in the eighteenth century, but apart from that, the church is in the same state as when it was built. Constructed of tuff stone, the church shines in the sunshine. There are several steps up to reach the church. There is a small souvenir shop at the base of the steps, to the left.
