  • If driving here be sure to take the main road via Sisian. I highly recommend this fascinating smaller Monastery for anyone who appreciates hidden gems off the beaten track. Bird watching in this...

  • Vorotnavank (Armenian: Որոտնավանք) is a monastic complex located along a ridge overlooking the Vorotan gorge, between the villages of Vaghatin and Vorotan in the Syunik Province of Armenia. The complex is surrounded by a high stone wall for defense against foreign invasions and once housed workshops, stores, a seminary, resort, cemetery and an alms-house. A pillar stood in the yard of the monastery symbolizing that there were monks entering into religious service and kings inaugurated at this location.
  • Beautiful site. The facility was well preserved. A bit off the beaten path but worth the drive.
