Admire exquisite stone carvings at Haghartsin Monastery, an architectural ensemble featuring three masterful stone churches surrounded by a thick forest. One of Armenia's most visited monasteries, this compact architectural complex built from the 10th to the 14th century includes St. Stepanos Church, St. Gregory Church, and Holy Mother of God Church, whose sixteen-faced dome has elaborately decorated arches. Ornamental highlights include a chandelier and icons, one of which depicts an Asiatic Virgin Mary and Jesus in an attempt to spare them from Mongol destruction. Visit the royal sepulcher and the vaulted refectory (built in 1248 and still in use) to round out your experience of the medieval complex.
