It is quite difficult not to include this destination whilst travelling in Armenia. This fantastic tour will introduce you to the Pagan history of Armenia, and show the later spread of Christianity in the country. Garni Temple (77 A.D.) – the first stop – is the only standing temple in the whole post-Soviet area. Garni gracefully stands on a high plateau overlooking the Azat river gorge. You will also see the roman bath house with the mysterious mosaic, made out of 30,000 pieces of natural stones, as well as the ruins of the royal palace of 3rd century A.D.
The next stop of the tour is the monastic complex of Geghard. Translated into English as “Monastery of the Holy Lance”, it refers to the lance with which Longinus pierced Jesus. Later brought to Armenia and kept in the Geghard monastery for 5 centuries. The most astonishing part is the virtue of the architect, who cut the church right into the solid rock whilst considering all the rules of Armenian architecture.
