'''Haghpat''' ({{lang-hy|Հաղպատ}}) is a village in the [[Lori Province]] of [[Armenia]], located near the city of [[Alaverdi, Armenia|Alaverdi]] and the state border with [[Georgia (country)|Georgia]].
 
It is notable for [[Haghpat Monastery]], a religious complex founded in the 10th century and included in the [[UNESCO]] [[World Heritage List]] along with monasteries in nearby [[Sanahin]]. The monastery is an outstanding and magnificent example of medieval Armenian architecture that has been attracting increasing numbers of tourists.
Haghpat Monastery is listed among the UNESCO World Heritage List (1996).
 
The village lies on a [[dissected plateau]], a large flat area dissected by deep "cracks" formed by rivers, including the river [[Debed]]. The villages of [[Sanahin]] and [[Akner, Lori|Akner]], as well as a part of [[Alaverdi, Armenia|Alaverdi]], lie in plain view on neighbouring sections of the plateau, however a steep and long descent to and ascent from the river is required to travel to them.
