Noratus

Trip Planner Asia  /  Armenia  /  Gegharkunik Province  /  Noratus
Noratus is a major and historical village in the Gegharkunik province of Armenia, near the town of Gavar. It is famous for the Noratus cemetery.Noratus is first mentioned as a settlement in the Middle Ages, when it was a much larger settlement. The bronze-age megalithic fort near the village points to the notion that Noratus is one of the most ancient continuously inhabited settlements in Armenia.Northeast of Noratus, there is Gavar transmitter, a huge Soviet-type facility for longwave, mediumwave and shortwave radio broadcasting. There are a great number of medieval monuments and records in the village and around it. One of the famous churches in Noratus is St. Astvacacain church, which is located in the middle of the village. It was built in the late of 9th century by the Gegharkunik prince Sahak. The church was a domed hall, completely built from polished and large stones. It was foundered in the last centuries and as traditionally it is said, the dome and roof were destroyed by the Lezgins. Alashkert immigrants have covered it with timbers. The church had a fenced yard, where now there are many khachkars and headstones. The most ancient record is on one of the khachqars, which is now kept in the State Museum of Armenian History.
Noratus is in Gegharkunik Province. Use our Armenia trip planner to arrange the details of your trip to Noratus and other destinations.
