Tour description: Haghartsin is a 13th century monastery located near the town of Dilijan in the Tavush Province of Armenia. It was built between the 10th and 14th centuries (in the 12th under Khachatur of Taron); much of it under the patronage of the Bagratuni Dynasty.
St. Astvatsatsin Church in Haghartsin (1281) is the largest building and the dominant artistic feature. The sixteen-faced dome is decorated with arches, the bases of whose columns are connected by triangular ledges and spheres, with a band around the drum’s bottom. This adds to the optical height of the dome and creates the impression that its drum is weightless. The plat band of the southern portal’s architrave is framed with rows of trefoils.
Goshavank is a monastery of the 12th-13th centuries. It was founded by Mkhitar Gosh, a medieval Armenian ruler who was both a scholar and a politician.
The monastery is situated near the village of Gosh, 23 km from the chief town of the region, Dilijan. The monastery complex consists of a number of churches, chapels, a gavit a bell tower and khachkars (stone-crosses). The churches are decorated in accordance with the traditions of the time. As a rule, the door portals and windows are framed in rectangular or arched plat bands some of which are profiled.
Today the monastery is not a functioning religious complex, although it remains a popular tourist destination and has recently undergone some light restoration.
