High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Yot Verk Matur
(Armenian: ) is a small monument erected around the late 14th c. in
remembrance of seven lords of seven villages. Local folklore tells
that when the Turko-Mongol conqueror Timur Lenk came into Armenia,
he made war against seven lords. As a result of the battles, the
lords were killed and their villages were destroyed by Timur. The
name literally translates to "Seven Wounds Chapel." Seven khachkars
are lined in a row upon a low rock wall which surrounds the
memorial, and one in particular situated in the center dominates
the others. The memorial is located in the mountains 8 kilometers
south-east from the ruins of the fortified Urartian city of
Teyseba, also known as Odzaberd and also the modern village of
Tsovinar. Geographically it is located at the south-east corner of
Lake Sevan, which can be seen in the distance at a highpoint
amongst the ruins of the ancient city Khrber which the memorial
lies within. Within the ruins of Khrber are many ancient khachkars,
headstones, and tombs. The majority of the oldest graves are
located at the base of a hill just south of the ruins.
