Trvizi chapel

Trvizi monastery or Moro-Dzoro, located near the village of Lusahovit in Tavush Province, is a medieval Armenian monastery.

The monastery dates from the V-XII centuries. An inscription on its walls records that king Georgi of Georgia (1156-84) freed the monastery from taxes and endowed it with land. The dome of the Astvatsatsin church was rebuilt in 1213 by Atabek Ivane Zakarian. Nearby is the medieval settlement of Tsrviz, with khachkars.
