      Built in the 10th century, the Haghpat Monastery served as a location for rewriting books and teaching theology, painting and multiple humanities. The monastery was also home to an excellent Armenian theologian, philosopher and poet Hovhannes Imastaser, who, according to legend, was also renowned for his writings and works in Georgia. As an Armenian calendar reformer, Hovhannes developed his “immovable version” in which he organised all events and holidays in the church. In his favourite pastime, he indulged in reading, staying in a cell without food all day. The legendary Armenian poet Sayat-Nova lived in Haghpat Monastery for some time. The monastic complex is made up of several churches, a bell tower,a porch,  a book depository and a refectory constructed at various times.
