The village of Karbi is in the Aragatsotn region, on the right bank of the Kasakh River, which has been mentioned since the 13th century. The village survived both the invasion of Tamerlane and Turkish -Persian wars. In the second half of the XVIII century, there was even a currency changing place, where merchants could change their assets. There are many historical monuments in the village, but the best is preserved the three-aisled basilica of Surb Astvatsatsin (Holy Mother of God), built in 1691-1693, made from shaved tuff. There is also a two-storey church bell tower attached to the east of St. Astvatzatzin, which was built in 1338.
With no stairs to climb and uneven edges on the ground at front entrance and inside the church, you will be able to freely visit and tour the Holy Mother of God church.
