Arakelots Monastery (Armenian: Առաքելոց վանք Arakelots vank' ; "Monastery of the Apostles") is a 13th-century monastery located roughly 3 kilometers southwest of the village of Kirants in the Tavush Province of Armenia. The monastic complex sits upon the crest of a hill surrounded by a dense forest on the left bank of the Kunen River.

Approximately 80 meters downhill from the monastery are the ruins of a caravanserai. The ruins of a chapel sit on the next hill as well. Supposedly, two kilometers northeast of Arakelots Vank on a flat area on the mountain ridge is the little church and khachkar of Khndzorut.
