Hayravank Monastery (Armenian: Հայրավանք) is a 9th century Armenian monastery located near the village of Hayravank along the southwest shore of Lake Sevan in Armenia. The church has a quatrefoil cruciform central-plan with four semi-circular apses that intersect to create a space for the drum and dome to stand. The drum and dome at one point had disappeared completely, but were later restored.

To the northwest a short distance from the monastery, there are the remains of Bronze Age through medieval fortification walls and foundations of a settlement. Nearby are also two Iron Age tombs.
