Description: Depicting the culmination of Armenian medieval architecture, the monastery of Geghard embodies a number of churches and tombs many of which were cut into the rock. Enclosed by towering cliffs at the entry way of Azat Valley, the complex of medieval buildings is anchored into an area of immense natural beauty. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
