In this context, the number of Armenian churches built in the 10th century is also remarkable. One of these religious structures is the Horomos Church, about 15 km from Ani.

In the 13th century, the building, which transformed into a cemetery of the Mkhargrdzeli Dynasty, also had a section called 'Scriptorium', where books were produced. Although it remains a religious center that has maintained its cultural significance for centuries, it was abandoned in the 1600s according to estimates horomos church... The church, which began to be active again since the mid-1800s and was undergoing repairs, remained completely deserted after 1920 when the nearby village was empty, especially destroying the walls.
