  • Interesting object. It is a pity that such historical places abandoned in Armenia. The Armenians themselves do not need anything. Rubbish in the forest. Though the route arrows drawn.

  • Very nice monastery hidden in the forest. Before visiting it, be sure that you know GPS location and navigation device, in case of bad wheather you can lose direction in the forest
  • Very nice place
  • A must visit place, everyone should feel the old architecture of this monastery hidden in the forest
  • A great, fantastic place... At first it is very hard to find the monastery which is in a dense forest... The monastery is small... But you can see that the walls inside are built with cross stones (khachkars). The walls are covered with moss which makes it unique. In winter when there is a little sunshine inside the church the walls are becoming golden. The places itself is mysterious... You can lie on the roof of the church and stay there for hours!!!!
  • It is a hidden church in Dilijan national park. You can get there by following red marks on trees. Be careful to not be lost.
