Orbelian's Caravanserai

Orbelian's Caravanserai was built in 1332, by prince Chesar Orbelian for travelers and their animals as they crossed from, or into, the Vayots Dzor province of Armenia. This building is an excellent example of Armenian secular architecture in the Middle Ages, and it was very important for the branches of the silk road which went through this area of Armenia.
