Gegharkunik is a province (marz) of Armenia. Gegharkunik was named after Gegham, a Haykazuni King and fifth generation after Hayk. At 5,348 km², Gegharkunik is the largest province in Armenia by area. However, approximately 1,278 km² of its territory is covered by Lake Sevan, the largest lake in the Caucasus.
Sevan Peninsula was an island in the northwestern part of Lake Sevan in Armenia. After the artificial draining of Lake Sevan, which started in the Joseph Stalin era, the water level fell about 20 metres, and the island transformed into a peninsula. Sevan Island is home to a ninth-century Armenian Cathedral church, known as Sevanavank. According to an inscription in one of the churches, the monastery of Sevanavank was founded in 874 by Princess Mariam, the daughter of Ashot I.
