Harichavank Monastery

Churches and Monasteries

The main church of this walled monastery complex was sponsored in 1201 by the brothers Zakhar and Ivan Zakharid, whose portraits are displayed on the church’s eastern wall. On the western side of the church is a large four-column gavit (built before 1224) with an exquisite stalactite floor and vaulted ceilings laden with mosaic designs.
