Tigran Honents Church

Ani Ören Place, a full treasure chest that has been defiant for centuries, is one of the focal points in the tourism area of Kars, the historic city in eastern Turkey. In addition to the authentic texture of the city and its local flavors, many mosques, churches, caravanserais, castles, bulwark and many more structures can be seen in this area. It can be met on the same day with many historical values sorted in close location in a nutshell... The Church of Tigran Honents is one of these ancient values. Tigran Honents Church, dating back to 1215 and surviving quite well, stands out with its characteristic details. It's built by Tigran Honents, a wealthy merchant. The cross-shaped plan features interiors and semi-circular rooms carrying the dome with columns. Animal figures on the roof, frescoes on the inside and other sundial slates on the eastern front. The church, which is a relatively well-conditioned jesus drawing and especially the intensive visits of foreign tourists, is among the most important historical structures of Kars.

    Günümüze kadar gelmeyi başaran bu yapı, Ani harabelerinin içinde yer alıyor. Ermenistan sınırının karşısında ve ipek yolunun üzerinde bulunuyor. Arpaçay Ermenistan la aramızda sınırlarımızı belirliyor.
