  • Unfortunately this monastic complex is more of a ruin than anything else but worth visiting if in the Yeghadzor region as there are a number of fairly well preserved gravestones scattered around.  more »
  • This village with the homonymous Herger River not far from the administrative center of marz-Egehnadzora. In itself, there are a couple of more modern churches (one 19 century, the other in General whether the 13-th, 14th). But the monastery Goshavank (local is more often called what we know as the monastery of Surp Zion) is half a kilometre from the village-if you turn left before the main road turn right in the direction of the road Egehnadzor-Goris. It seems that 8 of the 20th century. «Goshavank "-translated" double monastery "is really two churches, tightly pressed to each other. The walls are not common, but there is almost no gap. This is the Church of Surp Zion and Surp Asdvadzadzin Church. Nothing remarkable, as it seemed to me.

Inside there is an ancient inscription, read that, not knowing the language, we, of course, could not.
