Ohanavan

Perched on the edge of the Kasagh Gorge, the monastery Hovhanavank in the village of Ohanavan was once an important educational and theological center where manuscripts were written and illuminated. It has two adjoining churches: a basilica dating from the 5th century and the 13th-century Church of St John. The church has an altar decorated with frescoes, as well as unusual cantilevered staircases on its north and south sides. The entrance to both buildings is via a splendid 13th-century gavit.
Ohanavan is located 27 km from Yerevan.
