St. Karapet

S. Karapet

S. Karapet The domed cruciform S. Karapet was dedicated in 1006, commissioned by Shahandukht’s son, Sevada. It was renovated in 1315 for Prince Burtegh (Burtel) and Pughta Orbelian, and again in 1438 for Sarkis Angeghakotsi. The interior walls were decorated with wall paintings, believed to be of the same school of painters as Tatev.

The western arcade wraps the southern wall of S. Stepanos. It is paved with gravestones of important personages, and has some interesting khachkars.
