Description

We'll start the morning with a visit to Garni Pagan Temple, the only Hellenistic temple in the Caucasus and the only pagan temple still standing in Armenia.

Then we go on to Geghard Monastery, carved out of an enormous monolithic rock. It is an incredible ancient Armenian monastery and it is believed that the Holy Spear that pierced the body of Christ was kept here. The architectural styles and the decoration of Geghard's rock show that Armenian builders could not only construct superb works of architecture out of mere stone, but also hew them in solid rock.
