Zorats Church is a church built on a hill overlooking the Yeghegis River in present-day Armenia. The church was built in the early 14th century CE and dedicated by Bishop Stepanos Tarsayitch who was a grandson of an Orbelian prince. Armenia was at that time a contested territory between various Turkish tribes.
