The church is considered to be a gem of Armenian architecture and a model of the austere beauty of early Armenian ecclesiastical architecture, thanks to its fine Armenian-style architecture of the classical period. Its form had a great impact on the design of future Armenian churches. The plan is classified as a complicated variation of the cruciform ground-plan, due to its domed tetraconch enclosed in a rectangle, and the two angular niches on opposite sides.
