Sevanavank is a church complex along the shores of Lake Sevan. It consists of two churches: the Church of S. Astvatsatsin (Mother of God) and the smaller Church of S. Arakelots (Holy Apostles).

The complex was founded in 874 AD by Princess Mariam, who was the wife of Prince Vasak of Kapur and the daughter of the Bagratuni King Asot, and for a long time it had been a priviledged pilgrimage destination.
