Armenia32 Haghpat monastery

(1 vote)

Armenia, officially the Republic of Armenia, is a landlocked country in the Armenian Highlands of Western Asia. While Armenia is geographically located in the South Caucasus, it is generally considered geopolitically European.

The UNESCO Committee decided to inscribe the Monastery of Haghpat on the basis of cultural criteria considering that it is of outstanding universal value and an exceptional example of ecclesiastical architecture that developed in Armenia in the 10th to 13th centuries which is unique by virtue of its blending of elements of both Byzantine church architecture and the traditional vernacular building style of this region. Haghpat, built by the royal Bagratouni dynasty in the Lori district of northern Armenia in the 970s, was known from early times as Sourb Nshan (the Holy Cross) of Haghpat.
