Stop At: Garni Temple, Geghard Monastery Road H3, Garni Armenia

This fantastic tour will introduce you to the exotic Pagan history of Armenia, and show the later development and spread of Christianity in the country. The first stop is Garni Temple (77 A.D.) –it is the only standing heathen temple in the whole post-Soviet area. The temple gracefully stands on a high plateau overlooking the Azat river gorge. The greek-roman bath house with the mosaic, made out of 30,000 pieces of natural stones, as well as the ruins of the royal palace, will take you to 3rd century A.D.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Charent's Arch, Garni Armenia

Charents Arch is located on the road to Garni (and ultimately Geghard Monastery as well) and is used as a spectacular place to view Mt. Ararat and her valley. On a clear day it provides a simply spectacular view. There is enough room for several cars to park, and would accomodate a picnic or rest. The Arch has enough cover under it that if it were a rainy day a group could still enjoy the surroundings and experience there without getting too wet.
