Twilly with ornaments of “Makaravank.”
Makaravank is a 13th-century church complex near the Achajur village of Tavush Province, Armenia, located on the slope of Paitatap Mountain.
Though the monastery is no longer used for services, the complex is well preserved. There are four churches, a gavit (narthex) that serves the two largest churches, and other buildings that serve secondary roles. At one time, there used to be vast settlements around Makaravank, which was of great importance for the monastery’s growth.
