Orbelian’s Caravanseria is a unique example of Armenian medieval secular architecture. It was built in 1332 across the Vartenyats Maountain Pass by Prince Chesar Orbelian. It was considered to serve for weary travelers and their animals as they crossed the Vartenyats Pass from or to Vayots Dzor Region. Located at the southern side of Vardenyats Mountain Pass at a height of 2410 meters above sea level, Orbelian's Caravanserai is the best preserved caravanserai in the entire country. Ruins of a small chapel may still be seen adjacent to the vestibule, across the road from a spring.
