Teryan Street Residential House

Teryan Street Residential House

While leaving the Merkurov house museum and continuing your walk down the Teryan Street you will see another piece of Alexandrapol architecture, a residential house built in the 1910s by a famous and rich industrialist Hamazasp Tsaghikyan. The house stands on the crossing point of Teryan and Abovyan streets with its architecturally impressive facades. It has one floor and the southern part leads you to the back yard with metal arch gate, which has 2 large openings on both sides. These openings used to be duqans (local stores). The auxiliary building in the backyard used to serve as a barn for horses. The building suffered badly from 1988 disastrous earthquake and is in need of urgent repairs.

Continue your way down Teryan Street and on both sides of the street you can admire the beautiful buildings of old Alexandrapol architecture on both side of the street
