Pay a visit to Kecharis Monastery, a church complex built between the 11th and 13th century and nestled in the picturesque Armenian highlands. Founded by an Armenian prince of the Pahlavuni dynasty--buried in a small chapel on the premises--the medieval compound includes three churches and a series of chapels, well-restored after a damaging earthquake in 1927. Explore the modest, austere monastic complex dotted with numerous old tombstones, enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, and admire the ornate memorial stone slabs, or "khachkars."
