Garni & Geghard
Explore the Garni pagan temple and the rock-cut Geghard monastery.
Surrounded by the stunning deep Garni Gorge is the 1st century Garni Temple – with its classic Hellenistic pagan temple style. This was the site for the last refuge of King Mithridates of Armenia before his assassination. Geghard Monastery’s truly unique architecture is rock-cut from the nearby caves which produces beautiful acoustics suitable for Armenian choir singing.
