"St. Thaddeus the Apostle Church of Ddmashen is a 7th-century Armenian church located within the village of Ddmashen in the Gegharkunik Province of Armenia. Named after Saint Thaddeus the Apostle the church is considered by some to be the fourth most important example of its style of architecture after the Cathedral of Talin Ptghavank and Aruchavank. Following structural damage caused by an earthquake the drum was replaced in 1907 by a sixteen-sided one in an architectural style that was different to that of the original. Aside from the aforementioned alteration there have not been any other major changes to the church. A large cemetery is situated south of the church consisting mostly of unmarked grave stones."
