The Hayravank Monastery is situated on a rock ledge, on the shore of Lake Sevan. The small church dates from the late 5th century. In the 12th and 13th C., a large vestibule was attached to the western side of the monastery. 

This gavit (vestibule) has a very beautiful two-toned ceiling. The ceiling is decorated in a black and red checkerboard pattern and is one of the oldest of its kind.

Noteworthy as well as are three red khachkars (cross-stones) embedded in the western facade.
