The Khirsa monastery of Saint Stephen is a Georgian Orthodox monastery in the eastern Georgian region of Kakheti. The foundation of the monastery is credited by historical tradition to the monk Stephen, one of the Thirteen Assyrian Fathers active in the 6th century. The extant edifice, a domed church, is the result of a series of reconstructions between 886 and 1822. It is inscribed on the list of the Immovable Cultural Monuments of National Significance of Georgia.
