Haghartsin is a monastery located near the town of Dilijan in the Tavush Province of Armenia.
The complex includes a series of churches dating from the 10th to 14th centuries.
The monastery of Haghartsin, together with that of Goshavank, may become part of a natural site based on the state protected area of Dilijan National Park, an important forest in north-eastern Armenia.

Armenia is located in the southern Caucasus and is the smallest of the former Soviet republics. It is bounded by Georgia on the north, Azerbaijan on the east, Iran on the south, and Turkey on the west.
A land of rugged mountains and extinct volcanoes, its highest point is Mount Aragats, 4.095m (13,435 ft).
