Haghartsin, Armenia

Next is a super cool card from Armenia - a country I would really like to visit one day.

This is the Monastery Complex Haghartsin -  a 13th-century monastery located near the town of Dilijan in the Tavush Province of Armenia. It was built between the 10th and 13th century; much of it under the patronage of the Bagratuni Dynasty.  
The largest building and the dominant artistic feature is St. Astvatsatsin Church  


the stamp is from a set of 7 Forget-Me-Not Flowers issued in 2015, commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide
