The monastery of Kobayr was built in 1171. It is located not far from Tumanyan Town, on the high slopes of the Debed gorge. The monastery was built with the order of two sisters, the Kyurikyan princesses. Soon after the construction a Georgian Orthodox family Zakaryans owned the monastery. Later the King Zakaryan was buried here. Already after two centuries of its construction the monastery was seriously damaged by the earthquake. Now the ruins preserve unique murals created. You can see both Armenian and Georgian and Byzantine culture in those murals.

This impressive architectural construction consists of three churches, belfry-burial vaults, refectory, chapels, khachkars and the remainders of the fort walls. Even in a half ruined condition, the complex is of great value and of great interest for the travelers.

The interior of the Kobayr monastery is rich in frescoes with the depiction of Virgin Mary with archangels, figures of saints as well as ornamental belt. These wonderful frescoes make unforgettable impression on every visitor.

The Kobayr Monastery is a must-see place in the country.
