We have been unable to discover any reference to a “Kanzaran”—a place where treasures are kept—in Echmiadzin in relation to the Armenian church. lf such a place by that name exists it is not publicized.

The word Kanzaran may be of Hebrew derivation. with Kan meaning “here” and Zaran meaning “God has richly blessed.” This implies a place where things that God has richly blessed are stored.
