Makravank
While passing the lake of Hrazdan, a spur road leads up to the left to Makravan {turn away from the concrete umbrella-like bus station and drive along the park to the Administrative building a few hundred meters ahead, turn right to the big road and left onto it, in a few hundred meters it kind of ends at which point you can already see the monastery, and another quick left and right will get you to the village. Parking by the water trough and walking a minute may save some parking hassles.}, now an outlying neighborhood of Hrazdan and site of the Makravank{*} {spelled in the Russian Alphabet Макраван on map H.} monastery. There is a half-ruined 11th c. chapel, a 13th c. domed S. Astvatsatsin church, and the lower walls of the gavit.
