Marmashen

This monastic complex is considered one of the most fascinating works inherited from the former Bagratid Kingdom of Armenia. It is adjacent to the Vahramaberd community. 

The new name derives from the name of the most powerful ruler of the region, Vahram Pahlavuni, who ruled over Marmarashen during 988-1029.

The monastic complex consists of the main church, a gavit, a rectangular building, a chapel, two small churches in the North and the South, and a forth church located a little way away westwards.

The whole monastic complex was completely renovated in collaboration with Italy and is one of the most beautiful architectural works of Armenia.
