The consequences of the earthquake have not been eliminated so far: if the central streets are put in order, then in the alleys there are many destroyed buildings, which has become one of the most visited places in the city.

Freedom Square is the heart of the city and the entrance of the old historic city. The square is surrounded by ancient temples - Yot Verk (Seven Wounds) and Surb Amenaprkich (The Savior). The area is unique because of the unique location of the churches: two churches that look at each other.

Now it serves as a cultural complex where various state-level events are held. In doing so, it retained its ancient appearance.
