Vankasar Church (Armenian: Վանքասարի եկեղեցի) is a 7th-century Armenian church located in the Martakert Region of Republic of Artsakh.[1][2], de jure in the Agdam District of Azerbaijan.

It is built of cream colored stone, and it sits on a peak that allows it to be visible from several miles away.[3]
