Lonely Planet review for Monastery of Arkaz
About 3.5km along the road from Tanahat Monastery leads to the Monastery of Arkaz. It is well-known for holding a piece of the True Cross under a stone marker in the back of the church. The church sees many visitors during the last two Sundays of October when locals arrive in droves to sacrifice animals after the harvest.
