The Saghmosavank is a 13th-century Armenian monastic complex located in the village of Saghmosavan in the Aragatsotn Province of Armenia. Saghmosavank is situated atop the precipitous gorge carved by the Kasakh river. It is composed of St. Sion, St. St. Astvatsatsin Churches, Govt and Cathedral. In 1215 duke Vache Vachutyan built St. Sion church and presented a village to the monastery. Sion Church is the main church complex.
The main church is adjacent to the scriptorium, where many manuscripts have been produced during centuries. Saghmosavank underwent the devastating influence of the earthquake in 1988. The reconstruction comleted in 2000 returned the church its beauty and glory.

    Լավագույն վայրերից

    Հրաշալի բնությամբ թերևս ամենահին և ամենալավ պահպանված եկեղեցիներից մեկն է,որտեղ կարելի բավականություն ստանալ,լիցքաթափվել ոչ միայն եկեղեցի այցելելուց,այլև բնության գրկում հանգստանալուց։
