Noravank is a monastic complex built in the 13th century and located in the gorge of the Amaghu river, near the city of Yeghegnadzor, Armenia. The monastery is best known for its two-storey Church of Holy Mother of God (Astvatsatsin). In the 13th–14th centuries, the monastery became the residence of Syunik's bishops and, consequently, a major religious and later cultural center of Armenia.
