What are the numbers and averages?
|Built between the 5th and 7th centuries, Odzun Church is a well-preserved (and restored) basilica in the Armenian town of Odzun just a few kilometres away from the more popular town of Alaverdi. The space surrounding the church is littered with interesting khachgars and graves, with the mountains all around providing an impressive backdrop. What’s inside remains a mystery to us though, as the doors were locked at 11am on a Saturday.|
