  • Beautiful monastery place on large precipice, in a magnificent setting, characterized by a high dome umbrella roof and historically recognized as the place where the relics of John the Baptist were brought from Saint Gregory the Illuminator, after Episcopal ordination at Caesarea in Cappadocia. Not to be missed!

  • This monastery and it sister one in the gorge are absolutely worth de visit, lovely location, great views and amazing architecture. A must  more »
  • This monastery is worth a visit, as it is the atmosphere around the tide of peace. Silence, peace, beautiful views of the Valley, the mountains and the Valley of Ararat. Few tourists, well-groomed territory supplements the spirituality of the monastery.

  • A beautiful monastery (vank) on top of a deep ravine. Most of the monastery is from the 13th century but the old small basilica i from the beginning of the fourth century.
  • Beautiful church
  • The church here is awesome! It used to have a significant church. It is very easy to get there. You can walk there from the village Karbi. There are some other cool churches on the Kasagh gorge.
  • Beautiful and inspiring monastery, with gorgeous canyon,
  • Most interesting is carved scene from the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins. Virgins are bearded men :)
