Traveling with us around Armenia means high-level tour of the program individually compiled and thought out to the smallest detail for each of our clients.
No traveler to Armenia can avoid this wonderful masterpiece partially carved out of the rock right in the canyon of Goght river. The name Geghard derives from the holy spear brought there still in the first century by apostles. This is the very spear by which the Roman soldier pierced Christ while on the cross. In Armenian it is called “Geghard”. Now the spear is exhibited at the museum of Etchmiadzin (The holy capital of Armenians). So don’t hesitate to head to Geghard monastery to let your soul soar above these rocks and mountains and enjoy all the marvels created by mere hand tools still in the middle ages.
You have a chance to touch the beliefs of humanity!
Continue your wonderful tour to the 1st Century A.D. Garni Pagan Temple which was once the summer residence for the Armenian Kings of the day. Garni is the only standing heathen temple in Armenia and also in the Former Soviet Union territory . The temple stands on a high plateau overlooking the gorge of Azat river. The plateau itself is incredibly beautiful and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage along with the surrounding area. It is also home to the Roman bath house with the mysterious mosaic floor made out of 30,000 pieces of natural stones, as well as the ruins of the royal palace, dating back to the 3rd century A.D..
