SIGHTS - Haghartsin Monastery


 

Haghartsin Monastery is on the Ijevan road; near Teghut village. It is one of Armenia's most evocative sites. After passing the remains of a cable car, one can note the funerary shrines with khachkars. Haghartsin is a monastery complex, first building of it is the large vaulted dining room of 1248, one of only two such in Armenia (other at Haghpat), beyond which is a ruined service building with working oven. The gavit (end of 12th c) was built at the behest of Ivane Zakarian against the small domed 10th c. church of St. Grigor. The small St. Stepanos church of 1244 is behind. St. Astvatatsin church on the right, built or rebuilt in 1281, has high on the outside of the east wall a donation relief sculpture showing the Zakarian brothers.
There is an ancient nut tree just E of the Astvatsatsin, shading a fine view point, and various remains of graves, including "royal" graves of the Bagratuni family south of the St. Grigor church.
