                        UNESCO-listed Geghard Monastery is one of the most popular tourist sites in , and it’s not hard to see why.

As well as the main temple complex with its somewhat unique wall carvings and shadowy/smoky interior, there is a cave temple to explore with excellent acoustics and numerous fine examples of khachkars dotted about.
