  • As soon as you arrive you proposed a guide and with a donation brought us around explaining all the various facets of this monastery, letting us see even a room not open to the public. Amazing!

  • Slightly off the beaten track, Sanahin (in particular) and Haghpat are very impressive. If you catch the rays of light penetrating the churches at the right angle, the experience is magical. 
  • Began their journey to Armenia from this monastery because it is closest to the border with Georgia, and Tbilisi to get here is much easier than from Yerevan. It is located in the mountains of Armenia, in September there were already cool. Between its walls you can wander more than one hour, imagining a life that flowed here, especially if you've seen the movie "color of pomegranates", which was filmed here Sergey Paradzhanov. In the main temple of the monastery are held very merroprijatie vpechaljajushhee service, especially if you encounter the first time. In the morning it was almost empty, we da pair from Japan. Oh, and great views around.
