Fodor's Review

Located at the foot of the hill by Kars River, this was originally built in the 10th century as the Armenian Church of the Twelve Apostles. You can still make out the Apostles on the exterior of the drum-shape cupola. Since 1998, the building has served as a mosque, with the entrance on the far side.
