Kecharis Monastery, Tsakhkadzor

(4.7/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Pay a visit to Kecharis Monastery, a church complex built between the 11th and 13th century and nestled in the picturesque Armenian highlands. Founded by an Armenian prince of the Pahlavuni dynasty--buried in a small chapel on the premises--the medieval compound includes three churches and a series of chapels, well-restored after a damaging earthquake in 1927. Explore the modest, austere monastic complex dotted with numerous old tombstones, enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, and admire the ornate memorial stone slabs, or "khachkars." Kecharis Monastery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Tsakhkadzor Edition.

  • Was there in Feb 2017. Could have spent a few hours here. If you want to go there to spend some time in prayer, try to find quieter times, it is well worth it. 
  • For those resting and rolls around in Tsaghkadzor recommend visiting the Kecharis Monastery complex. Colorful, wafting from antiquity and understand all the frailty of existence ...

  • Kecharis Monastery is indeed one of Armenian treasure, one of their 101 monasteries! A monastery that is strong enough to still stand since year BC until now.
