At its height in the 13th century CE, Geghard Monastery in what's present-day Armenia benefited from the patronage of Armenian and Georgian princely families, and it was a pilgrimage site. Among its reliquaries were supposedly the spear used by a Roman soldier to pierce the body of Jesus Christ as well as a wooden fragment said to have been a part of Noah's Ark.
