These three churches can be called sister churches owing to the legend around them. In ancient times three sisters lived in the town of Ashtarak. Misfortunately or fortunately enough all of them fell in love with the same person, the prince Sargis. The elder sisters decided to help the youngest one and sacrificed themselves for the sake of the happiness of their younger sister. But it turned out to be just the contrary. The two elder sisters wore dresses, one red and the other of the apricot color, and threw themselves into the gorge. The youngest sister fell into despair. This one put on a white dress and again threw herself into the gorge. The prince Sargis became a hermit, and then three small churches were erected at the edge of the gorge. Each church was given the name of the dress colors of the sisters.

Tsiranavor is a small church of a cruciform type. The church is constructed from tufa of apricot color. After the collapse of the roof, drum and dome, only the walls have survived.

Spitakavor once had a façade painted white with inscriptions on it. The church is now mostly in ruins.

Karmravor is also known as St. Astvatsatsin. The church is quite small, but very fascinating. Situated in the northern part of the town of Ashtarak, the church of Karmravor is a real gem of the 7th century Armenian architecture. This small cruciform domed church has survived to the present time as it was set up originally, and is the only monument in Armenia that has retained its original tiled roofing. Unprecedentedly harmonious proportions distinguish this church from the other architectural monuments in Armenia.
