The Convent of Yergan

The remains of this monumental Armenian medieval monastery are in the village of Yergan/Ergen (Geçimli) in Hozat district. The monastery, known under various names (Surp Haroutioun, Garabedivank and Garmirvank) perhaps dates from the 10th century. It was an important place of pilgrimage and center of manuscript production.
