This monastery was located at the quiet hightop. The surrounding area was also beautiful. This monastery was under renovation when we visited. But, we still managed to take many good photos of this monastery.

Matosavank is situated in Dilijan National Park, 3 km north-west of Dilijan. Matosavank was built by Avag Zakarian of the Orbelian Dynasty. The Monastery is constructed from roughly hewn stones and currently only the ruins remain. The Monastery is decorated with skillfully carved lacework khachkars.

The monastery located in the woods of the Dilijan National Park. We walked there from the centre of Dilijan, and it took 1,5 hours to reach. The monastery looks like an unknown secret place, where medieval monks were livin, and preserving armenian culture. The complex...More

It was foggy in the forest when we visited the Matosavank monastery, and it created an magical and mysterious atmosphere. The whole place looked like a scene from Lord of the Rings. The ruins of the Matosavank monastery are nestled on the side of a...More
