Main Page
Tegher (before Dighir, elev. 1700m) is at the end of a mountain road, surrounded by fields of grass and flocks of sheep and cattle. The old village, built in the 19th c and abandoned in 1962, is a fine example of traditional Armenian architecture and lies next to the large monastery which, for all its dark and brooding looks, appears like a fairy tale castle as you twist and wind your way uphill to its alpine location.     Tegher Monastery
