UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stunning Medieval complex with a church carved out of the adjacent mountain. Amazing views, tranquil, holy place. A must see.

Have a look at the trees around the Monastery dotted with strips of cloth. It is said, if you make a wish tying a strip of cloth to a tree, it will come true!

Fantastically beautiful place. But people coming here do not obey any rules of church visiting. What a shame. Parking costs 200AMD

Очень красивый действующий монастырь!!! Внутри много национальных узоров, крестов, фигур вырезанных в камне. Очень крутая атмосфера внутри. В одной из комнат находится источник воды. ВХОД - Бесплатный

Обязательно поднимитесь на второй уровень, где храм высечена прямо в скале. Там потрясающая акустика. На строительство этого храма ушло 40 лет

Удивительная акустика пещерных залов, родник прямо в церкви - символ единения человека и природы.
