What are the numbers and averages?
|Zvartnots Cathedral was reportedly built during the 7th century, and what remains of it following an earthquake now lie between Yerevan and Vagharshapat . This cathedral is thought to mark the meeting place between King Tradt III and Gregory the Illuminator. Excavated quite recently, what stands now are the pillars of what would have once been an impressive three-tiered doomed cathedral.|
