Smbataberd fortress

Vayots Dzor
V c.

The Smbataberd fortress of the 10-11th centuries is located in the Vayots Dzor, to the east of the Artabuynk village. It has high and wide (2-3 m) pyramid type fort-walls built with large bazalt stones, and protected by the Artabuni and the Yeghegis Rivers and deep canyons. The fort is divided by a wall on both the northern and southern sides, where the ruins of the middle-fort dwellings and water-pools have been preserved. The water originated from the natural springs and canals of the Tsaghats Kar’ monastery nearby.
