Day 2 Saturday

 

Khor Virap-Etchmiadzin-Zvartnots-Departure

Drive through the pretty Ararat Valley to the 4th century monastery Khor Virap, where you will enjoy the view of Mt. Ararat. Ararat is the mountain, which will let you feel where your ancestors come from. “Khor Virap” means “deep dungeon”, where the first Armenian Catholicos Gregory the Illuminator has been detained for 13 years for spreading Christianity in the 4th century in Armenia.

Feel the breath of Christianity!

Do you know that Armenia has another capital besides Yerevan? It is Etchmiadzin, the spiritual capital of Armenia.

Visit Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, the religious center of Armenia. The church was built in the place, where the Son of God (Jesus Christ) appeared in the dream of the first Catholicos of Armenia St. Gregory the Illuminator, pointed out. This is where the name Etchmiadzin (Only begotten came down) emerged. You will take part in holy liturgy. 

On the way back to Yerevan enjoy the next Armenian 7th century sanctuary Zvartnots, which means “Angels meeting”. Both Zvartnots temple and Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin are listed in UNESCO World’s Cultural Heritage Sites.
