Explore more of Artsakh and visit the Monastery of Gandzasar. This religious structure is perched on the hilltop and overlooks the dense forests and proud mountains of the Martakert Region that have protected the architectural pearl for centuries. From here, continue to the city of Tigranakert, founded by the Armenian king Tigran the Great.
