      The monastic complex, built in the Middle Ages, has an interesting name. According to the popular legend, the name of this unique monastery came from the combination of “ari” (come) and “tes” (see). The monastery consists of three partially ruined churches and a narthex. Visitors can also see khachkars of the 12th century and five small tombs of the 7th century on the territory of Arates Monastery. The monastery buildings were repeatedly updated and restored in the Middle Ages. Arates Monastery was the summer residence for the metropolitans of Syunik.
