Description
Ghazanchetsots Cathedral (Armenian: Սուրբ Ամենափրկիչ Ղազանչեցոց Եկեղեցի), also known as the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and the Shushi Cathedral, is an Armenian church located in Shushi, Nagorno-Karabakh. It was built between 1868 and 1887 and has a facade of white limestone. Its architect, Simon Ter-Hakobyan, intended the church to resemble Etchmiadzin Cathedral. In front of the west entrance is a freestanding three-story bell tower, constructed in 1858. Large statues of angels blowing trumpets stood at each corner of the bell tower's second story. However, they were destroyed during the Nagorno-Karabakh War when Shushi was under Azeri control. #Alto_Karabaj #Armenia #armenian #armenien #armenio #Artsakh #catedral #cathedral #chiesa #christian #church #cristiano #Dağlıq_Qarabağ #eglise #Gharabagh #Haiastan #iglesia #igreja #igrexa #Karabakh #kirche #monasterio #mosteiro #NagornoKarabakh #Shusha #Shushi #temple #templo #Vahe #Şuşa #Армения #Арцах #Карабах #кафедральный #Нагорный #собор #церковь #Шуша #Шуши #Արցախ #եկեղեցի #Լեռնային_Ղարաբաղ #Հայաստան #Շուշի #վանք #տաճար
