Geghard is a beautiful monastery built over a natural cave, which also houses votive facilities and beautiful stone carvings. Geghard is said to house the spear that pierced the side of Christ at the crucifixion. While I can't confirm or deny the legend, the monastery...More

You can't really go to Armenia and not Geghard; it's arguably Armenia's most famous monastery, it's very accessible from Yerevan and it's easily thrown together with a trip to Garni to make for a very accessible and brilliant day trip. Set in the Khosrov State...More

Really astonishing monastery which is carved out of the solid rock of the mountain with impressive artistic decoration. Worth to spend your time and drive out of Yerevan on your way to Garni temple.

Its hard to avoid the many monasteries in Armenia and after a while you get some serious monk fatigue. This one should be on peoples list though as part of it is built inside the mountain and it has frequent performances of a local choir....More

We met a great taxi driver in Yerevan who we booked to take us to Garni and Geghard. We left around 9 am and were back around 12:30 for lunch in Yerevan. We went to Garni first and there weren't many people there. Geghard wasn't...More
