Monastery complex Sevanavank is located on the peninsula of Lake Sevan, which was once an island . The first church was found here by our first catolicos Gregory the Illuminator in the 4th century. Later according to the inscription of the churches the monastery was found in 874 by princess Mariam. Here lived Armenian king Ashot I. The monks who lived here built the additional and auxiliary buildings. In the 16-17th centuried the walls of the monastery were destroyed. Today only two churches are standing on the peninsula. The first Church St. Harutyun is destroyed. From here you can enjoy the perfect view of our blue beauty Lake Sevan.
