Kecharis Monastery, Tsakhkadzor

(4.7/5 based on 110+ 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.
