The Noravank Monastery, Armenia


Contributor AlexAvsharov put together this excellent aerial tour of a well-known monastery in Armenia, one of the first lands to officially adopt Christianity.  It's called the Noravank Monastery, and it's located in a narrow river gorge in the Vayots Dzor Province near Yeghegnadzor, a bit over 120 km (75 mi.) south of the Armenian capital city, Yerevan.  It was founded in 1206.  The two main buildings in the complex are the Surb Astvatsatsin Church, completed in 1339, and the somewhat smaller Surb Karapet Church, completed in 1227.
