St. Sarkis Monastery

High above the village of Ushi on an plain hill lies the semi-ruined 5th-13th century Saint Sarkis Monastery. It sits at the far side of what was once a settlement site from the 3rd - 1st millennia BC.
The monastery is a pilgrimage site and was one of the centers of spiritual education in Armenia. Many examples of early Armenian architecture from several periods can be seen around the complex.
