This place is mind blowing carved out in the mountain it is a church it seems to be very old. You need a private transport to go to this place. It will take an hour to complete the tour. Must visit

We visited quite a few Armenian attractions, and Geghard was clearly one of the highlights (if not *the* highlight) of our trip. The fact that some of its rooms are hewn out of a single rock - but still perfectly symmetrical - is breathtaking. But...More

We visited there in the early October. The weather was awesome and Geghard was really beautiful. I love there but it didn't had the light inside the monastery. The Gata bread was delicious, too.
