I loved visiting this place. At any cost it can not be missed when someone is in Dilijan. It is surrounded with a beautiful forest and the architecture of the Cathedral makes it quite appealing.

It was (almost) on the way (driving) between Georgia and Armenia. I was curious as there was an Arab (Sharjah Ruler) who had funded the reconstruction . Trip was interesting .

This is another charming and ancient monastery in Armenia. This one is set among woods, and has been well restored. You don't have to climb many steps to enter it, either (as you do at some others). We enjoyed walking around and taking it all...More
