Description

This trail leads to a monastery. Havuts Tar is a monastic complex, an architectural monument, situated on the top of the mountain, on the left bank of the Azat River, east of Garni (province of Kotayk). It was one of the cultural and religious centers of Medieval Armenia. Grigor Magistros Pahlavouni built the Surb Amenaprkich Church (St Saviour's church) in the area around the monastery in 1,013. Havuts Tar was destroyed by an earthquake in 1,679. Currently the monastery is under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture.

The trail is wide and relatively easy apart from a steady climb to the monastery.
