Aragatsotn - Tegher Monastery

The inscription shows that the church and the gavit adjoining it on the west were built for Prince Vache Vachutian’s wife (“Mama Khatun”) and designed by architect Vardapet Aghbairik in 1213-1232.

19th c graveyard

19th c graveyard

The medieval-19th c graveyard has the ruins of a few mausoleums and some interesting khachkars, a couple of which lean against wall ruins. They are deeply cut geometric drawings of the cross and tree of life with fancy edging in the frames, but miss the sun symbol favored in other khachkars of the period.

    How to reach Continue uphill on the Dzorap road (take the left fork when given the choice) for about 5 km on a climbing, winding road past the turnoff to Orgov (at about 2.9 km) that gradually deteriorates as it reaches Tegher Monastery․
