This postage stamp, jointly issued with Armenia in order to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, features the most significant Christian monuments from the 9th century. They form a religious link between our geographically distant countries. The Tatev monastery (in Armenian Տաթևի վանք), situated on a rock near the village of Tatev, is one of the oldest and most famous Armenian monasteries. It used to be the seat of the bishop of Syunik province and thus it was the important political, cultural and spiritual centre of the region. The monastic complex was included in the UNESCO representative list of World Cultural Heritage sites in 1995.
