Next  is  Irind.   A  rightturn  on  the paved road from the Irind village square leads in 100 m to the remains of an important 7th c. octagonal church. Somewhere nearby is an Iron Age fortress.

   The  left   fork  from   the   main   road leads to Yeghnik (till 1946 Dadalu), with S. Nshan church of 1866. The main highway cuts through a rise containing a substantial 4-6th c. fortress found and excavated during road construction.
