      SANAHIN MONASTERY

      There is an ancient Sanahin village located near Alaverdi city, in Lori province. The village is famous for the eponymous monastery complex (10-13 century). Sanahin was originally intended for exiled monks who were hiding from the persecution of the Byzantine emperor. The complex was erected on the initiative of the Armenian king Ashot III Voghormats (Merciful) in 966. Subsequently, Sanahin became not only a spiritual, but also an educational center. The school opened here was turned into an academy where prominent figures of Armenian science of the Middle Ages taught. Sanahin monastery complex is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
