Overview

Garni Temple - the only monument preserved in the pagan and Hellenistic period in Armenia, dedicated to the sun god Mihr. Built in the year of 76  BCE  by King Trdat I and served as a summer residence of Armenian kings. The remains of the old fortress and the royal palace, as well as the baths built in the 3rd century, have been preserved at the temple. Here is a wonderful view of the river of Azat River, Garni gorge.
Geghard monastic complex - has its name from the famous spear, according to which traditionally Roman soldier Longin hacked Christ. Geghard was brought to Armenia by two apostles and is now being kept at Etchmiadzin's depository and displayed to visitors. Geghard Monastery is part of the UNESCO world heritage.
