SIGHTS - Akhtala monastery


Akhtala is a 10th-century fortified monastery located in the village of Akhtala in the Marz of Lori, 185 kilometers north of Yerevan. The fortress played a major role in protecting the north-western regions of Armenia (Gugark) and is among the well preserved of all in modern Armenia. The main church in the complex is famous for its highly artistic frescoes covering not only the interior walls but the partitions and the bearings of the structure. The modern name of Akhtala was first recorded in a 1438 Royal Decree. The fortress is surrounded with deep rocky canyons on its three sides, and its northern side is adjacent to the plain. Besides nature, the fortress was protected by high pyramid- like gates that are preserved to this day. In the Village of Akhtala, there are many other churches, chapels and defense structures that are either still standing or had been destroyed (X-XIII Centuries) such as: The Holy Trinity Church, the St. George Church, the two churches of the Chapel of Barsegh, and etc.
