Ruins of Targmanchats Vank, September 2009.
|Location||Aygeshat, Armavir Province, Armenia|
|Affiliation||Armenian Apostolic Church|
Targmanchats Vank (Armenian: Թարգմանչաց վանք; meaning "Translators Monastery") of the 6th to 7th century is located within the village of Aygeshat in the Armavir Province of Armenia just off of the main road through town. The site is gated and one must inquire about accessing the church.
Most of Targmanchats Vank is in ruins except for an extant portion of one of the wings. Massive sections of other walls remain relatively intact though laying in large sections on their sides. These may be seen adjacent to the church. Walls of the church are unadorned and simple. Around the premise are some gravestones as well as other more ancient carved stones. The workings of an attempted modern restoration may be seen with the start of a new foundation and structural steel supports.
