The monastic complex of Marmashen, which is also known as Marmarashen Vank is situated on a picturesque shelf facing the left bank of the Akhuryan River surrounded by fruitful trees, a stream and a nice waterfall. According to a version the name of the complex means “a marble building”, even though there is no marble used in the construction of the complex. In this case the “marble building” may be attributed to the fact that it was constructed with the highest quality.

Before the Turkish invasion, the monastic complex of Marmashen was circled with village houses. The roundabouts of the territory was once bleak and free of any type of vegetation, but now the monastic complex is surrounded by dense orchards of apple trees.

The complex of Marmashen includes The Katoghike church, St. Astvatsatsin church, St. Petros Chapel, and the ruined Chapel.

The Katoghike Church is the biggest in the complex. The church has an umbrella shaped cupola. The cupola makes a dramatically beautiful decorative effect. Huge stones, some of which reach up to two meters high, have been used in the construction of the church.
