      ST. SHOGHAKAT CHURCH


      St. Shoghakat church is a late object of the Etchmiadzin architectural complex. It was erected from brown tuff in the form of a domed hall which was popular in Armenia in the 6th and 7th centuries. The interior is restrained and laconic. The architectural elements and ornaments decorating the temple from the inside are made in the same way as the decoration of the St. Hripsime church and the main cathedral of Etchmiadzin. St. Shoghakat church was built in the place of imprisonment of one of the Christian virgins who fled from Rome and were tortured by the Armenian pagan king Trdat III. According to the legend, it was here that the “light fell” on martyrs and this phenomenon is translated into Armenian as “Shoghakat”.
