Armenia – A Country of Temples and Monasteries


The mountainous Caucasus region is among the earliest Christian civilizations, which defined by its religious sites including the Greco-Roman Temple of Garni and the 4th-century Etchmiadzin Cathedral. Khor Virap Monastery is a pilgrimage site near Mount Ararat, a dormant volcano just across the border in Turkey.

The country is one of the 6 ancient countries that have survived for thousands of years. Armenia was first mentioned in King Dari I’s Behistun manuscript in 520 BC. Also, it was mentioned in ancient Greek authors Herodotus and Xenophon in the V century BC.

Considerably, Armenia is the homeland of Apricot which was called the “Armenian apple”. A famous Armenian musical instrument “duduk” is made of apricot wood.

There will be a lot of fascinating spots in Armenia, however as the saying goes, it’s better to see once than to hear it a hundred times.
