Talin is in Central Armenia.
- Talin Cathedral - Just west of the town center is the huge 7th century cathedral built much in the style of the Cathedral of Ani a few kilometers west, and the Cathedral of Aruch, a few kilometers east down the highway, and worth a visit also. Talin Cathedral also has a smaller, tiled-roof church near the entrance to the grounds.
- Dashtadem Fortress, 6km south of Talin, has a castle and church in the middle of a fortress. These are being restored, and are worth a side trip on the way to Gyumri in the north.
