Photographs. Ruins of Forty Infants Monastery

According to the scripture found on the facade, the monastery of Forty Infants in the village of Dsegh, Lori Province, Armenia, was consecrated in 1256 by the Abbot of the Haghpat monastery, father Hamazasp. Back in the old days, it was a rather large monastic complex that consisted of several buildings, including the main church, the vicarage, the dwelling areas, and other structures of which very little survived up to this day. Built in the years of 1241-1256 the main church was rectangular in its shape, with a domed hall.
