Yeghishe Arakyal Monastery

Yeghishe Arakyal Monastery (Armenian: Եղիշէ Առաքեալի վանք, or Monastery of Yeghishe the Apostle) is an Armenian Apostolic Church located on the bank of the Tartar in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. Because of the close proximity to the militarized border, no visitors are allowed to travel to the monastery.

Yeghishe Arakyal Monastery was built sometime in the 5th century and expanded in the 13th century. The minster is surrounded by 7 chapels, one of which is the tomb of Vachagan III, King of Aghvank, also known as Vachagan the Pious, (487–510).
