  • One of the most beautiful monasteries we visited in Armenia. The location itself is magnificent, mountain views are so unreal. The place itself has very pleasant and peaceful ambience. Must visit if you are in the Lori region.
  • I’m not religious but this place is one of my spiritual inspirations in this country. Would advice to visit during “non-touristic” periods so you’ll be able to get some one on one time at this beautiful place.
