It is worth visiting this complex if you are in the village. Quiet atmosphere with a small souvenir shop mainly with religious objects.

The Kecharis Monastery is a wonderful example of Armenian cathedrals. Several stone crosses are also in the courtyard, which are uniquely Armenian.

Every year millions of Armenians and foreigners visit to Kecharis monastery and small church next to Kecharis named after St Harutyun. This place is an ancient and historical place and situated near Tsaghkanc mount. It is reconstructed recently but loses its' historical shine.
