Sanahin, Armenia

Focus on Sanahin Cemetery:  Archaeology has yielded a trove of khatchars at Sanahin Monastery, but in the cemetery out back, somber etching have become far more popular than traditional stone crosses as memorials. The monastery complex is a prized link to Armenia's medieval past. If you visit, remember that the best view of the monastery is from the cemetery. [2015]
