Kecharis is a monastic complex of the 11-13th centuries. It is located in famous ski-resort town of Tsakhkadzor (the latter means “gorge of flowers”). The site is purely visible from above the mountain slopes.

 

The complex was under the rule of nakharar (hereditary title of the highest order given to houses of the ancient and medieval Armenian nobility) families who turned it into a major center for learning. The educational process was led by the greatest Armenian academics and statesmen of the time. One of them, Grigor Magistros, who also came from a powerful ruling family, supported the monastery with gold and silver, furnishings and decorations.

Now, admiring the powerful monastery of the kings, you may have the impression as if that fortune is still there, but in vain. Having overcome countless invasions and attacks by the natural calamity, the majestic edifice may never ever show us its powerful walls covered with silver and gold, with rich tapestries and silk carpets.

Still, the royal monastery does not fail to impress and attract every visitor with the powerful beauty it possesses.
