      The monastery of Saint Sarkis is a large monastic complex, 45 by 54 meters (148 by 177 ft) outside the village of Ushi in the Armenian province of Aragatsotn. It lies on the far side of what was once a 3rd-1st millennia BC settlement site. The monastery is a well-known pilgrimage site and has been one of Armenia’s centers of religious education. Around the complex can be seen many good examples of early Armenian architecture from different eras. In December 2003 to Spring 2004, restoration work was carried out on the chapel, and recent archeological excavations under the patronage of Archbishop Shahen Ajemian, led by Frina Babayan, have begun.
