Impressive building, constructed in 2006, so very recent but done in the traditional Armenian style. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it though, there may be more interesting sights.

This newly built church is located in Town Abovyan, just 20 km away from Yerevan. The church is huge and located on a small hill, with extensive carvings on its walls. The church itself is all made of volcanic tuff stone.

A recently built church funded by one of Armenias most wealthy families

An extraordinarily beautiful construct - with classic Armenian Orthodox Church design and inside the paintings are just inspiring and spiritual

I'm not one for religious activities but this one truly was amazing and you must go and see it

Very beautiful and unique church

This church is built in best Armenian traditions. Very beautiful from outside, it also has some unique beauty inside. The roof is covered with some big paintings (not very usual for Armenian churches). The size of the church is big which also makes it a bit unusual.
But overall this is a relly nice church, with amazing engravings on the walls.

Beautiful new church in Abovyan
Apr 2015 • Solo
There are many churches in Armenia named after Saint Hovhannes. This one is located in Abovyan on Russia Street at 40.275886, 44.631208. This is a new church, opened in 2013, and it is impressive indeed. It is considerably more ornate than most other new Armenian churches. For example, the Saint Gregory the Illuminator Cathedral in Yerevan is larger, but quite boring by comparison.

I rode my bike by Saint Hovhannes Church of Abovyan on Easter Sunday and it was packed with Armenians. There was also a wedding. The church is easy to access along Russia Street, which also has plenty of parking spaces.

This church has 5 domes and rises in the central part of Abovyan. Since it's so large, it can be seen from most of the surrounding area. I highly recommend you swing by this pretty site, even if just for a few minutes.
