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!
