What people are saying:

Haghartsin Monastery is located near the town of Dilijan. It can be said that the location of this monastery is very good. It is hidden in dense woods and walks along the winding mountain road into the valley. There is a small parking lot next to Haghartsin Monastery. There are three churches in Haghartsin. The main church of Saint Astvatsatsin was built in 1281. It is a domed tower with a high drum inside. Except for the west, all walls have two triangular niches outside. The oldest is the sacred Grigor church (11th century), with a domed tower on top of an octagonal barrel. A nearby church is rectangular and was built in the 12th century. The dome-shaped Stepanos chapel (1224 meters). The structural excellent dining hall was built by the architect Minas in 1248. It is an outstanding representative of medieval Armenian architecture. It has a bold structure with a pair of connected square halls and the roof is a crossed circle. Arched. Unfortunately, it was originally a great historical site and a World Heritage Site. However, in 2010, the Armenian Church spent 2 million US dollars to renovate it, which looks very new. After the repaired stone, there are not too many shadows of the past. The monastery that has gone through a thousand years seems to be less than a hundred years old, which also makes many people dissatisfied. Although it has lost its ruined style, you can also enjoy the Dilijan National Park when you come to Haghartsin Monastery. The scenery here is very good, and it is a worthwhile trip.
