Beautiful Orthodox Church

There are actually three hurches/chapels next to each other with a forth across the street. A peaceful place to visit.

This is a must see Monastery. Not like any monastery that I have seen before. I don't know how far it dates back but it gives you an idea on how it was 1000 years ago. It was even more beautiful with Snow

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.

Kecharis Monastery is indeed one of Armenian treasure, one of their 101 monasteries! A monastery that is strong enough to still stand since year BC until now.

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.
