Chiki Vank

S of Herher Village (in Vayots Dzor Marz)stands the Grigor Lusavorich shrine (1296), with S. Gevorg or Chiki Vank of 1297. The tiny and interesting monastery is perched on a sharp peak and can be reached throught the village and past the cemetary, or from the highway by hiking straight west from the pair of khachkars in cement by the road across the river and up the peak on the west. In the 13th c, Herher was fief of the Orbelian vassals, the Shahurnetsi family.
