Oshakan Village
Oshakan village 8 kilometers southwest from Ashtarak. It is well known to historians and pilgrims of the Armenian Apostolic Church. It is perhaps best known for the Church of Saint Mesrop Mashtots which also happens to be the burial place of Saint Mesrop Mashtots, the creator of the Armenian alphabet.

The village is rich in archeological monuments of the 3rd-1st millennia BC. On the hill called "Didi-Kond", ruins of an Urartian fortress (7th-6th centuries BC) with a citadel, palace and temple complexes were excavated. Burial mounds of the 11th-2nd centuries with Early Iron Age, Urartian and Antique tombs are scattered around the fortress and on the slopes of the hill. The Oshakan collection kept in the Museum is represented by a bronze statuette of a lion, original examples of coloured pottery, stone idols devoted to the worship of ancestors, various ornaments, tools and other objects.
