These monasterys are very special and world heritage listed. Wonderful inside and out. The light streaming through the windows into the interior is spectacular for photos. Such an old building but preserved wonderfully well. Must see.

Well worth a visit as this monastery is in great position above the spectacular Debed Gorge. We had an excellent free, English speaking guide and there was not even an entrance fee. A fascinating and long history was all explained so clearly and illustrated by some wonderful carvings and other architectural features. Particularly loved the library and the stories that went with it.

Atmospheric 1000 year old monastery to explore. Terrific setting and very peaceful surrounds. We walked there from Alaverdi and then on towards Haghpat, strenuous, but rewarding walk. What a marvellous area to explore.

I applied one day tour to Armenia via Envoy tours to visit here. No information or expectation for the monasteries. But once getting into the complex, the beautiful scene rushed into my eyes. There were few people around, no noise. Just sit on the bench and appreciate the air and the view. You'll be fully satisfied.

Be careful.
When I got there, there was an old lady sitting on a chair(seemed a local). When I took my camera out of my bag and tried some shots, she avoided. Maybe she didn't want to be on my picture and disliked it. Her face looked uncomfortable.

I loved these old monasteries. Amazing that they are about a 1000 years old. You can see why they are classified with UNESCO as world heritage sites.
Also such an amazing view of the countryside from here.
