Another wonderful piece of work by Armenian talented masters
If you are already in Nagorno Karabakh, then don’t miss the chance to visit one of the magnificent monasteries in Martuni region, Artsakh.
Surprisingly enough, the monastery is located right in the middle of the flat field far from the surrounding forested mountains. They are guarding Amaras monastery from afar and providing the excellent climate for visitors who come to see this early-middle-age-period architectural marvel left to us by our ancestors.
The monastery was built in the 4th century by St, Gregory Illuminator and was an educational, religious centre for centuries not only for the region but also for the whole Armenian community.
The monastery has the style coming from medieval centuries and is distinguished with its interesting structure. It is surrounded by huge stone fences and partially destroyed towers. The monastery has undergone a lot of invasions and plunder, but it continues to stand strong and share its history to its visitors. You will really be surprised visiting one of the magnificent monasteries in Martuni region, Artsakh.
