Century of Foundation: IX Date of Foundation: 895 Region: Syunik Location: Tatev village The Tatev monastery was built during the 9-13th centuries as an Armenian intellectual center where philosophers, musicians, painters, calligraphers, and monks lived. This monastery’s teachers produced manuscripts for the whole Armenian world. The complex started to act in between 895 and 906. St. Gregory the Illuminator, who spread the word of Christ throughout Armenia, is buried here in a small church built in 1295. The tall "Gavazan" was engineered and erected in 904, with a khachkar on top. Amazingly, this column was used to predict seismic activity in ancient times by its patterns of motion. The column was badly damaged in the 1931 by an earthquake. The periphery of this rocky terrain is covered with a variety of structures: homes, utility and subsidiary buildings, among them a vaulted font and fortification walls that date back to the 17th century.
