Khuchap Monastery (Armenian: Խուճապ, romanizedXučap) or Khujabi Monastery (Georgian: ხუჯაბი, romanized: khujabi) is a monastery dedicated to Our Lady of Iviron. It is situated in Privolnoye, a village in the Lori Province of Armenia, near the border with Georgia.[1][2]

Despite its geographic circumstances, Georgian authorities maintain that the monastery is situated in the Marneuli Municipality near the village of Akhkerpi.[3][citation needed][4][5]

Apart from the main church, Khuchap Monastery also consists of a gavit and several ruined buildings.[citation needed]
