"Land of Noah" offers a trip to the blue Sevan - “The Jewel of Armenia” or the “Geghama Sea”, which is one of the largest high-mountainous freshwater lakes in the world. In the northwest part of Sevan Lake, on a narrow rocky peninsula, there stands one of the most prominent examples of medieval Armenian architecture – Sevanavank Monastery. It was founded in 874 AD by princess Mariam. The remnants of the monastery that was constructed in the 9th century include only two temples – Surb Arakelots and Surb Astvatsatsin, standing among numerous khachkars. The church buildings were constructed from black tuff, which probably gave the monastery its name Sevanavank - “the Black Monastery”.
Due to easier accessibility, good highway and railway connections with Yerevan, a well developed tourist industry in the town of Sevan, and the picturesque location Sevanavank is one of the most visited sights in Armenia.
