  • Ovanavan Monastery complex captivates with its fertile mind. In this place you forget about time. Inside the Temple of peace, tranquility and grace. The temple is not acting but feeling let understand that this ancient treasure. With one of the sides of the Temple a picturesque Gorge, offering vast expanses. Will Armenia, be sure to visit this place. A little bit about the Earth and household needs. Toilets anywhere in this site there is, be prepared to endure till the next stop or go in advance.

  • You cannot miss this place! The Church itself is not like the others. The unique architecture. Lift your head on the ceiling in the first room and wonder bells and an open belfry. Look at the window on the right! But right and right?! Here the finest khachkars with ornaments! After visiting the Church definitely go watch the waterfall in the Canyon. And left viewable by neighboring shrine, Saghmosavank. Will miss this Breathtaking views! Canyons, caves and waterfall near the 11th century monastery! Amazing place, unforgettable

  • The unique dome covers a church designed by St. Gregory the Illuminator to the relics of Saint John the Baptist. The Church is much brighter than many other of the same period and is especially rich in inscriptions and bas-reliefs. These include the representation of the parable of the wise and the foolish Virgin, quoted by St. Matthew. Remarkable also the Windows to angelo and the many writings of pilgrims. Altered by the earthquake underwent a restoration of great merit

  • One of my favourite churches in Armenia. It is situated next to a valley so dont forget to appreciate the might of nature when you come to visit this church. Its architecture is beautiful as well. Easy to get there by public transport as well.
  • Nice, if you want to visit taje a bus in Kilikia Bus Station.
  • Hovhannavank is a monastery near Ashtarak city and not so far from Here and, about 30 minutes from the center. It is 12-13th centuries cathedral, one of the biggest old Armenian churches. And there is 7-8th centuries basilica. And there is A monastery in 10 minutes from here.
  • Loved the gorge, absolutely beautiful view, you can also hear and see the waterfall nearby.
  • I visited this place in the first week of June'17 it is worth spending some time here enjoying cool air coming from the gorge behind the monastry. A good place for nature/historical/archeological enthusiasts.
