The Church is much brighter than many other of the same period and is especially rich in inscriptions and bas-reliefs. These include the representation of the parable of the wise and the foolish Virgin, quoted by St. Matthew. Remarkable also the Windows to angelo and the many writings of pilgrims. Altered by the earthquake underwent a restoration of great merit

A beautiful monastery (vank) on top of a deep ravine. Most of the monastery is from the 13th century but the old small basilica i from the beginning of the fourth century.

The church here is awesome! It used to have a significant church. It is very easy to get there. You can walk there from the village Karbi. There are some other cool churches on the Kasagh gorge.
