Citations[edit]

Someone with a ton of knowledge about this place probably want to put up some references for this article, for that it seems to be an interesting topic. Tighten-up some of paragraphs are also nice.--Balthazarduju 00:15, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

photos[edit]

Sorry Serouj, I reverted your edit. The reason Geghard is a UNESCO site is because it is rock-cut, more than anything else. The top photo shows one of the rock-cut rooms very nicely, whereas the photo you were replacing it with is just another picture of a beautiful Armenian monastery (though a pixelated one at that). There are well over a hundred beautiful monasteries, but this is what makes Geghard special. The second photo you replaced showed the height of the sheer cliffs in the canyon, another very impressive feature. Much more impressive I think than a three-color flat closeup map mostly in Armenian showing the location. --RaffiKojian (talk) 21:42, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi Raffi, good points, but I think we need a picture of the monastic complex itself in its appropriate section and we need a better shot of the interior (without the guy in the pic) :). Thanks. Serouj (talk) 03:27, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
I just realized the first two pics are by you. Good job and thanks for sharing them. I found a better picture of the first on Flickr so I hope you don't mind my changing it... Serouj (talk) 03:30, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes, the new clean pic is better - it's great you found it. It was a really tough low light shot to capture, and you can imagine I was a bit disappointed a random guy was in my best pic :-) A general view of the monastery would be a nice addition, if I dig one up I'll upload it... --RaffiKojian (talk) 15:27, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
