The Great Hermitage of Tatev, which used to be a renowned religious center, is situated on the right bank of the river Vorotan, where the river intersects with its tributary Tatev. It was constructed in the 1660s by order of Catholicos Hakob IV Jughayetsi following the destruction of the nearby Harants (Fathers') Hermitage of Halidzor by an earthquake in 1658. The Harants Hermitage was located a few kilometers away from the Hermitage of Tatev. The layout of the Great Hermitage of Tatev is identical to that of the older hermitage, only with larger dimensions. The main part of the hermitage is surrounded by rectangular lime mortar walls with towers. An adjacent structure with a table-shaped plan is located on the southern side of the hermitage.
