What people are saying:

The Monastery of Sefan, also known as the "Black Monastery", is located on the top of the mountain next to Lake Sevan. It was built in the ninth century. For 11 centuries of wind, frost, snow and rain, I do not know how many caravans on the Silk Road passed by. At present, the monastery has long been empty, only the cross in the courtyard records the past glory. Early morning and evening are the most beautiful times in Lake Sevan. The monastery is solemn and quiet, with weather-beaten tough lines outlined under the sky. It is simple and elegant. It stands quietly on the shore of Lake Sevan, telling the believers that they have been committed for thousands of years. Faith. The brick wall has gone through wind and frost, but the wind hasn't diminished. Instead, it has a sense of heaviness that has been nurtured by history. Although the monastery looks a bit dilapidated in the sun, it seems that only this way can better reflect its charm. You should know that when many people first started to understand Armenia, they were impressed by the monastery of Sevan on this postcard.
