Create an itinerary including Kecharis Monastery
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." Put Kecharis Monastery on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Tsakhkadzor online journey planner.

  • I’m guessing this place is historical in Tsagkadzor as we visited this one as a part of our tour. What I like in this complex is that they have a QR Code near the entrance you read the history...
