Haghartsin

The Haghartsin Monastery, built in the X-XIII cc, is situated 18 km away from the town of Dilijan, in the woody valley of Ijevan mountain range. During the Silver Age, the monastery was a major center of Armenian church architecture and ranked among the leading cultural hearths of medieval Armenia. For 3 centuries subsequent generations of masonry masters added their brilliant creative work to the general ensemble.

St. Astvatsatsin, the main cathedral was built in 1281. A noteworthy part of the complex is the refectory consisting of two halls. One should go to the Haghartsin Monastery for the sake of the unusual feeling of idyllic calm hanging over this place cut from the outer world.
