Surb Astvatsatsin or Karmravor church is a small building with a cruciform central-plan and a dome with an octagonal drum and a Byzantine-style red tile roof. It measures only 19 feet 7 inches by 24 feet 6 inches, and is simply decorated with geometric and foliage patterns around the eaves and cornices. The apse is horseshoe shaped. Many of the original tiles on the roof which were laid on mortar have remained intact, and the church has had only some minor restoration during the 1950s.
The church of Tsiranavor is located at the edge of a gorge in the town of Ashtarak in the Aragatsotn province. Nearby are the churches of Spitakavor, Karmravor, Surb Marine, and Surb Sarkis. In the gorge is a unique bridge built in 1664.
