Overview:

Mughni–  Saint Gevork Monastery or Saint George’s Monastery of Mughni is located just off of the main road that runs through the village of

Mughni near Ashtarak in the Aragatsotn Province of Armenia. It was built (13 century) to house some of the remains of Saint George who was

known as the “Slayer of Dragons” In the appearance of the church, the use of black and yellowish tuff plays an important role.

Saghmosavank

Saghmosavank Monastery stands on the edge of the deepest part of the Kasakh gorge (200 m). From this picturesque place you can also see Mounts Ararat, Aragats and Ara.
The history of the monastery begins in the 4th century, when the first Armenian Catholicos Gregory the Illuminator built a church on this site and turned it into an episcopal see.

He teaches psalms to the priests, so the psalms would continuously sound in the church. This is where the name Saghmosavank (monastery of psalms) came from.

 

Alphabet Alley Nestled on the eastern slopes of majestic Mount Aragats, Armenian Alphabet Alley offers a unique journey through the heart of Armenian language and culture.

More than just a tourist destination, it’s a monument to the enduring spirit of a people and their devotion to their written word.

 

Amberd fortress On the southern slope of Mount Aragats at an altitude of 2300 m above sea level, sits proudly the fortress of Amberd. According to historians, the fortress of

Amberd was built from the 7th to the 10th centuries. The castle itself and part of the fortress walls were built in the 7th century, under the reign of the princely family Kamsarakan.

Later, in the 10th century, Amberd fortress belonged to one of the most influential princely families of Pahlavuni. The fortress served as the summer residence of Armenian princes.
