  • Being in Armenia hunting for medieval monasteries, from Kapan we went a few miles to the west where, in the mountains, there is this monastery that is in a beautiful mountain environment and is partly ruined but partly restored. Founded in the tenth century presents the typical Armenian architecture of this kind of buildings. Little known but handsome.

  • For me it was a hidden beauty which was not very much spoken about. Yet it's truly amazing, very beautiful and has a great history behind it. The monastery yard is taken care of and the monastery is in the renovation process. Hope very soon it will become a great place for visitors of Syunik.
  • Great nature and spirit of the middle-age Christianity, clear water sources and Armenian hospitality in one place.
