Village Aghvani


 The village Aghvani was inhabited by Turks in the 19-20th centuries. It was reinhabited by Armenians in the 1920s and 1990s. That is why most of the Christian monuments of the village are no longer there. Only one church, the name of which is unknown, has partially survived. The architecture of the church suggests that it was built in the 17th century. Only the altar of the church remains intact. Near the church, one can find Armenian cemeteries dating to the 20th century. Despite the half-ruined condition of the church, locals come here to light a candle and to make offerings. 

At the top of the hill facing the village, stands a 17th-century khachkar. It is believed that the khachkar has magical powers which can help childless couples conceive.
