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 centre of manuscript copying and place of pilgrimage.
