Seljuk Turks later inherited this type of architecture.

Especially the stone carving techniques.

Everything in Anatolia is actually connected.

Such as the connection between Ottoman mosques and Byzantine churches.

asimov - you are right. It is called Armenian Black Church.

Seljuk architecture is well known for its monumentality and its preference for stone over the more commonly used brick, which dominates architecture in Iran.

The seljuks preferred stone for their buildings, having been exposed to Armenian architecture and the skills of their craftsmen who were well-known stone masons.

The conical, faceted steeple was adopted and adapted by the Seljuks and can be seen all over Anatolia., where, as you say, all culture is interconnected.

The Great Mosque & Hospital in Divrigi (1228-1241), protected by UNESCO as a world heritage, is a perfect example showing the inheritance of Armenian stone carving techniques by Seljuk Turks, as well as the conical, faceted steeple (a characteristic of Armenian churches) like you mentioned. The Seljuk Turks perfected these techniques and went a lot further in terms of sophistication:

The Ottomans failed to preserve the Seljuk mastery in stone carving

Ottomans deliberately abandoned such stone-carving techniques as it did not represent the religious thought of the time.

side note: Seljuk's work is almost like Rococco - except a few hundred years earlier.
