"Goshavank Monastery" Dilijan Off The Beaten Path Tip by call_me_rhia
Dilijan Off The Beaten Path: 2 reviews and 6 photos
Goshavank Monastery belongs to the Dilijan district, in the small village of Gosh. It was built in the 12/13 century, after a earthquake had destroyed a previous monastery (Ghetik) with the help of a man named Mkhitar Gosh.
The churches of the complex are nice but not spectacular... what is spectacular is the carved portal - the same ornaments are also used on lintels and pillars. Look at the memorial khachkars: they are among the finest in the country - all locally made by the famous carver Pavgos.
Behing the complex there's a tiny museum.
