The edifice consists of a single narthex, two corridor-sepulchers, a refectory, a scriptorium, the Chapel of Hamazasp, a belfry, several chapel-tombs and a number of cross-stones, all surrounded by a towered rampart. The approaches to it are observed from the Kayanberd Fortress, which was built in the 13th century especially for that purpose.
