Tatev Monastery is a 9th century Armenian Apostolic monastery located on a large basalt plateau near the Tatev village in Syunik Province in southeastern Armenia. It is one of the oldest and most famous monastery complexes in Armenia. The term "Tatev" usually refers to the monastery. During medieval times Tatev Monastery was a vital scholastic, enlightenment and spiritual center and played a singular role in the country’s history. The monastic ensemble stands on the edge of a deep gorge of the Vorotan River. Restoration of the monastery, re-establishing its educational legacy and reviving monastic life at Tatev is one of the main goals of Tatev Revival Program.
