      ZORATS CHURCH

      Zorats church is located on a high hill of Yeghegis Village in Vayots Dzor Province. It was erected on the initiative of the grandson of the Armenian prince Tarsaich Orbelian. The church was built in 1303.The structure has a unique architectural design, not typical for traditional Armenian churches. A significant difference of the building is the altar located at the level of the rider sitting in the saddle. Due to this idea soldiers could ride on horseback close to the altar and get blessing before the battle. There are several roughly hewn large stones on the territory in front of the church, each of which has a round hole. There is no information on their exact purpose. Zorats church has been reconstructed and archaeological excavations are still being carried out in this place.
