Karmravor (Meaning "Reddish" because of the color of its dome) or Surp Astvatsatsin ("Holy Mother of God") is a 7th-century Armenian church built by priests Gregory and Manas.

1) ETCHMIADZIN CATHEDRAL is the mother church of the Armenian Apostolic Church. It was the first cathedral built in ancient Armenia, and is considered the oldest cathedral in the world. The original church was built in the early fourth century—between 301 and 303 according to tradition—by Armenia's patron saint Gregory the Illuminator, following the adoption of Christianity as a state religion by King Tiridates III. 

2) THE TEMPLE OF GARNI is a classical Hellenistic temple near Garni, Armenia. It is the best-known structure and symbol of pre-Christian Armenia. It was probably built by king Tiridates I in the first century AD as a temple to the sun god Mithra (known as Mihr in Armenian). After Armenia's conversion to Christianity in the early fourth century, it was converted into a royal summer house of Khosrovidukht, the sister of Tiridates III.
