Gyumri: Gyumri has a history of centuries. Formerly called Kumayri, it is the second largest city in Armenia. The city has a convenient geographical location due to which the climatic conditions are favorable.

Seven Wounds: There are two domes that collapsed due to the earthquake in the churchyard. The earthquake shocks saved the church from collapsing.

St. Nshan: The structure is mysterious with its interesting story. When the monastery served as an observatory, lightning entered the church from the dome, causing significant damage to the astronomical equipment installed here, because the cross of the dome was tilted due to lightning. Once the observatory is closed, it is not reopened, and the cross is later corrected to its former appearance.

St. Amenaprkich: The basilica-style church is located in the southern part of Vardanants Square. The architect is the famous master Tadevos Antikyan.
