Akori (Arm: Ակոռի), Lori Marz

Further N, in Alaverdi near the Sanahin turnoff, another road winds back W up to Akori (261 p), an estate belonging in the 19th c. to Count Loris-Melikov, successful general and briefly Prime Minister to Czar Alexander, one of the few Armenian members of the Russian nobility. In the gorge SE is S. Gevorg church, and there is the so-called Bgavor shrine somewhere nearby.
