One can never realize how beautiful this place if you cannot spend time looking around. The people are warm and friendly as well.

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.

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.

1. My legs are not really strong. I don't like climbing staircase. I feel my knees a little bit painful after climbing down staircase continuously for 10 minutes. Is it suitable for me to go to the Kecharis Monastery 2. Is there any bus from the city to this Monastery? Thanks for your advice. Mandy

I went there with a group, so we had our bus. I don't know if there is a bus service from the near city but I saw a lot of bus in the area and in front of the Monastery entry there was a bus stop. When you will arrive... More
