The Surb Astvatsatsin Church (Holy Mother of God Church) in Yeghipatrush Village
The Church was constructed between the 10th and 13th centuries. There are several khachkars (cross-stones) from the 7th -8th centuries found near the church. During construction, tombs from the 3-2nd millennium BC, were found and opened, near the village of Yeghipatrush, on both sides of the gorge. Clay pots and jewellery from the period were also found nearby. The Catholicos of All Armenians, Yesai A. Yeghipatrushetsi (ruling between 775-788), was born in this village in 696, and later the village was named after him.
The Holy Cross Church is situated in the town of Aparan, in the Aragatsotn region. It was built at the end of the 4th century, and was renovated in 1877. The church received its name due to the relic of the Lord True Cross kept there. This chapel functioned till the 40's of the 20th century, even during the Soviet times.
While traversing the Bujakan Mountain ski trail, we came across wolves and saw numerous traces of animals, probably foxes, rabbits, and/or rodents. But you may also come across a bear. In case you meet a bear, you should just give way to the animal.
