Soup for the Soul
Photograph by Alexandra Avakian

Women stir steaming pots of harissa—a traditional, hearty soup of chicken and wheat—to feed the crowds that will soon arrive at Noravank Monastery. The event? A celebration of the 1997 restoration of this 14th-century monastery. Even in the 1300s, Noravank could draw a crowd. Curious visitors would journey great distances to this remote canyon to see what was then heralded as radical architecture.
