The Monastery of Harichavank is situated in the village of Harich in the Shirak Province. The precise date of the foundation of the Monastery is not known exactly. But archeological excavations have shown that the Monastery of Harichavank was built in the 2nd century BC and was once a well known fortress town. 

The Monastery embraces the churches of St. Grigor Lusavorich (Gregory the Enlightener) and St. Astvatsatsin (The Holy Mother of God), as well as two gavits and several chapels, all of them constructed during different periods. The territory of the Monastery is surrounded by walls.

This famous monastic center was once a well known school and scriptorium. The church was originally built as a martyr’s shrine. The place later became a summer residence for the Catholicos.

The construction of the St. Grigor Lusavorich is attributed to the 7th century. The inscriptions on the church of St. Astvatsatsin witness that it was built in 1201 AD by the Prince Zakare Zakarean.
