Map of Armenian Churches and Monasteries Prior to the 1915 Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Turkey

Map of Armenian Churches and MonasteriesThousands of Armenian churches were built during the long history of Christianity. They varied in size from very small to large, although the major cities of Europe typically didn’t have giant structures, such as the St. Peter’s cathedral in Rome or the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople.

Besides being a part of monasteries, there have been separate small churches. And that’s only a fracture of the huge design variety. Each of the churches and monasteries has been remarkable for the diversity of its shapes, size, and volume.

The architecture of the churches in Armenia usually varied due to the local landscape conditions. A number of unique churches were designed by Armenian architects, but their primary purpose was to create efficient and practical structures.
