Odzun

The church of St. Astvatsatsin or Khachgond is situated in the village Odzun of Lori region. According to the legend, it was founded in the 1st century A.D. by the apostle Thomas, who consecrated the priests and bishops in the territory of the church. The present building of the church was built in the VI century in the place of an older basilica type church erected by Gregory the Illuminator and Trdat III in the IV century. There are many high-reliefs on the façade and on the window-frames of the church. The image of the angel on the right from the window is especially interesting. The angel of Odzun is presented in a difficult disposition: it is seemed to lean against the frame of the window. Next to the monastery there is a memorial of the VI century, which is like a double ark located on the leaders in the niches of which there are high-relief covered columns.
