Oshakan - Armenia

Yesterday there was no mail because of the holiday and today i've received this armenian card, my 1st card from Armenia. It was sent from Russia by Alisa "marylend".

This is a card from the Oshakan village in the west of the country.
The card shows the Church of Saint Mesrop Mashdots which happens to be the burial place of Saint Mesrop Mashdots, the creator of the Armenian alphabet. The church houses his grave and was rebuilt by Catholicos George IV in 1875.
