The church of St. Stepanos or Zorats (of the Army), is considered a fine relic of medieval Armenia. It was constructed in the 13th century by Prince Tarsaich Orbelian, governor of the province of Siunik. This church has no hall. It consists only of a central altar with a sacristy on each side. The faithful thus attended divine services in the open air. [Source: Monuments of Armenia]
