Jrambar (Armenian: Ջրամբար), is a small village in the Aragatsotn Province of Armenia. The local economy is based on the nearby Aparan dam and reservoir, which supplies the capital Yerevan with drinking water. Prior to the construction of the dam, the cultural monuments of the historic village of Zovuni (Poghos-Petros Chuch, Tukh Manuk shrine, and the S. Zoravar (General) Vardan Momikonyan Mausoleum) were moved stone-by-stone to higher ground to the east of the reservoir. The Zovuni cemetery sits to the east of the church, across a ravine.[1]
