Yeghishe Arakyal Monastery (Armenian: Եղիշէ Առաքեալի վանք, or Monastery of Saint Elishe) is an Armenian Apostolic monastery that is located on the bank of the Yeghsharakel River in the Mardakert region of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. Because of the close proximity to the militarized border, no visitors are allowed to travel to the monastery. Yeghishe Arakyal Monastery was built sometime in the 5th century. The minster is surrounded by 7 chapels, one of which is the tomb of King Vachagan III, also known as Vachagan the Pious (487-510).
