St. Sargis Church in Meghri

St. Sargis basilica church, built in the 17th century, is situated in Meghri town, marz Syunik. What attracts me most about this church is its simplicity and tranquility. The first thing that catches your eye is the modest building, made of rough stones.

The interesting thing is that it may seem uninteresting or boring from the first sight, as the church has no outer ornaments. The inside of the church is the contrast of the outside – colorful frescoes (Naghash Hovnatan school) decorate the walls of the church. Most of them depict scenes from the Bible and also from the history of Armenia.
