Description

Goshavank (Armenian: Գոշավանք) is a stunning 12- or 13th-century monastery located in the village of Gosh in the Tavush Province of Armenia. Meaning "Monastery of Gosh", the monastery was previously known as Nor Getik. Today, the monastery is not a functioning religious complex, although it is a popular tourist destination. The impressive monastery has remained in relatively good condition and recently had some light restoration work. The monastery also houses one of the world's finest examples of a khachkar, an Armenian stone-carved cross.

On the Road: Parking is 50m away. The monastery lies on the route of the Transcaucasian Trail: Dilijan National Park Section.
