This wonderful tour includes all the main sights of interest in Armavir province.
The first destination of the tour will be St. Hripsime church, which was built on the grave of a Christian nun, who preached and spread Christianity in Armenia. The next spot is 7th century church of St Gayane.
Later you will visit the world’s first Christian Cathedral - Echmiadzin. The word “Echmiadzin” means a place where “the only begotten son of the God descended”. According to a legend, Jesus Christ descended from heaven and indicated the spot for a church to be built. Echmiadzin is the residence of the Supreme Catholicos of all Armenians and the center of the Armenian Apostolic Church.
The next destination of our tour is one of the brightest landmarks of medieval Armenian architecture – the magnificent Zvartnots Temple constructed in the 7th century. All these churches and the temple are listed on the UNESCO World’s Cultural Heritage Sites.
From here we will leave for Sardarapat - a memorial complex to the Battle of Sardarapat. At the entrance to the square you can see two giant winged bulls symbolizing the titanic strength of the Armenian people and 35-meter-high stone bell tower.
A flower alley with stone eagles runs from the Victory Wall symbolizing the spirit of the Sardarapat heroes. From the center of the Victory Wall opens a view of the majestic Mt Ararat, the silent witness of the heroic past of the Armenian people. The complex is completed by an originally designed folk art museum.
