Ancient Churches of Armenia

Ancient Churches of Armenia

Armenia was the first country to officially convert to Christianity, it happened in the IV century and can still be traced through the ancient architecture preserved until our times. Practically every small Armenian village or town has its own church that could often be dated to the IV-VIII centuries.

By the way, it’s hard to confuse an Armenian church with any other’s, even with a Georgian one, not to mention Russian or Byzantine churches. Its most distinctive feature is a cone-shaped dome.
