Armenians appreciate their ancient history, their ancient places of worship and their ancient monuments. The name Sanahin means "This is older then the other one". Historians believe that the name of this beautiful village has come forth when its villagers boasted of having a church that was older then that in Haghpat, the notorious Haghpat monastery. People have lived in this village for hundreds of years. This village that seems a very regular one to a visitor, in fact was a leading center for religious, cultural and theological studies throughout Middle Ages.

Once in this village one should certainly visit the Sanahin monastery and the Migoyan Brothers' Museum. People in this village are very hospitable and are willing to share their stories, so if you speak Armenian and Russian, you should talk to them and learn more about old stories.
