Haghartsin
Haghartsin is a medieval monastery complex of the 10-13th century. It lies to the east of Dilijan at a distance of 12kilometers. It consists of four churches, two chapels a mess-room and khachkars.

The church of St.Astvatzatzin (1281) de­serves special mention. This is the biggest building of all, the artistic dominant of the ensemble. The tall sixteen-faceted dome, dominating all the other structures, is decorated with a graceful arcature.

The mess-room is considered to be construction of great architectural value among the similar others. It built by the architect Minas in 1248, is a structure of a rare composition.

Among the memorial khachkars of Haghartzin there are unique and highly artistic ones. Of interest is the ornamental carving of a thirteenth-century khachkar placed next to the southern door of St.Astvatzatzin church.
