The Vorotnavank monastery is an Armenian medieval architectural monument. It is one of the well known religious and cultural centers of the 10-15th centuries, situated 4 kilometers to the east of Sisian, on the left bank of Vorotan canyon 3 kilometers north-west of Vorotnaberd.

 

The oldest building is St. Stepanos church built by Queen Shahandukht in 1000 AD. Seven years later her son built the adjoining church of St. Karapet.

High stone walls once protected this majestic complex from foreign invaders and housed workshops, stores, a seminary, cemetery and an alms-house. The pillar in the yard symbolized that there were monks entering into religious service, besides kings were inaugurated at this location. Even though the Vorotnavank Monastery is presently in ruins, everyone can step through the roads of history and feel a monk or a king.

The cemetery in the territory of the monastery awakes the curiosity of every visitor with its gravestones.

As for St. Grigor the Еnlightener church, it is constructed in the shape of a rectangle square. This construction is furnished with cornices decorated with ornamental motives of vegetable and animal.

At present, ruptured basalt walls of small circle like or rectangular dwellings surround the whole territory of the fortress.
