Kecharis Monastery - Our First Stop!

This is the first monastery we visited as the location is very near to Alpina Tsaghkadzor Hotel The place was full of snow and a very nice place to visit during winter.

Was there in Feb 2017. Could have spent a few hours here. If you want to go there to spend some time in prayer, try to find quieter times, it is well worth it.

It is 100% worth visiting this church when you visit Tsaghkadzor. It is on the way to the ropeway, and you will have unforgettable memories there.

I have visit this church for many times but every time I find something new in this place. Advise tourists to visit Tsakhkadzor espacially Kecharis church and hotel Kecharis.

This is more like a complex of churches all of different sizes which made for an exciting opportunity to capture great pictures. The grounds are nice and we found parking easy although in the winter I am sure very difficult.

If you are in the area of Tsaghgadzor, this monastery, with two chapels and a church, and a nearby cemetery chapel, is a must. You can either drive up to it, or if you are staying at the Marriott, you can walk up the road - a bit of a steep hike but worth the effort.

This old monastery is very nice! It's just few minutes walk from kecharis hotel. The structure if the church was preserved, so beautiful from outside and inside. We are so blessed to visit this place.
