Tarvanot first mentioned by St. Orbelian in the list of the taxpayers (6 dahekan) of the Kovsakan district, was a small village, presently mined and desolate.
It was situated in dense forest, 2 km southeast of Tzobi. Both the church and the cemetery have totally collapsed or destroyed. Only the prop-walls of residential houses and fruit trees, having gone wild long ago are preserved in the site.
During the past one or two centuries the name of the village was transformed to Tarnavut or Tarnayut.
