It is said that at the request of one of the princesses of the Pahlavunyats dynasty, a large fortress was built in this beautiful valley, and a magnificent flower garden was built next to it. The girl demanded that the most beautiful flowers in the Armenian world grew in her flower garden. But the fierce wind of spring destroyed her flower garden, scattering the flowers across the valley. The gorge filled with flowers has been called Tsaghkadzor since that day. It was also the princess’s wish that her father built a monastery near her castle, so that the monks could pray day and night and return the scattered flowers. Thus, the Kecharis Monastery was built and the fragrant flowers spread throughout the province.
