      KOBAYR MONASTERY

      Kobayr Monastery consists of the main gate, refectory, church of Katoghike, chapel, church of Mariamashen and the bell-tower built at different times. The name “Kobayr” means “cave” and this is due to the fact that there are many caves in the area around the monastery. The monastery complex served as a cultural center, as well as a place where the chronicles were rewritten in the Middle Ages. Armenian chronicler and theologian David Kobayretsi lived here. The oldest buildings of the monastery were erected in the 12th century. Walls of the altar are decorated with images of prophets and well-preserved frescoes of both Armenian and Georgian traditional architectural style. The dilapidated architectural complex is undergoing reconstruction currently.
