Bgheno-Noravank Monastery (Armenian: Բղենո-Նորավանք; not to be confused with Noravank Monastery in the Vayots Dzor Province) is an 11th-century Armenian monastery in the Syunik Marz of Armenia. It now consists of a small church dating to 1062, located on a little wooded promontory, and ornately decorated with borders and biblical reliefs. The ruins of this church were rediscovered in the 1920s by Axel Bakunts, a well-known prose writer, during one of his wanderings as an agronomist.
