ARMENIA - Monastery of Geghard and the Upper Azat Valley

"The monastery of Geghard contains a number of churches and tombs, most of them cut into the rock, which illustrate the very peak of Armenian medieval architecture. The complex of medieval buildings is set into a landscape of great natural beauty, surrounded by towering cliffs at the entrance to the Azat Valley." -

My very first postcard sent from Nagorno Karabakh Republic (Armenian: Republic of Artsakh), showing the cupola of the Geghard Monastery.
Thank you so much Vahram for sharing this with me!
My UNESCO postcards collection from Armenia is now complete! ^-^
