A starry night above the monastery of Geghard, a World Heritage Site in Armenia. The church is being partially made like a hidden temple in a cave, carved out of the adjacent mountain, surrounded by magnificent towering cliffs. The monastery complex was founded in the 4th century at the site of a sacred spring inside a cave. Geghard means "the Monastery of the Spear". Oshin Zakarian/
