What can we say - it is an easy day trip. It is so interesting to witness Armenian baptisms, weddings, and blessing happening all day long.

Very interesting place with old Parthenon like temple. Nice green mountains around the place and not far from Yerevan. Worth visiting.

Absolutely amazing historical place. If in Armenia, then definitely arrange to see it. Its a unique architectural construction in the Kotayk province of Armenia, being partially carved out of the adjacent mountain, surrounded by cliffs. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This is a beautiful and unique architectural structure known to have been partially carved out of the mountains and cliffs in the Kotayk province in Armenia. The chapel is beautiful itself especially when you see the interior and as well as be amazed with the monastery and it's surrounding mountains, gorges.

This place needs a return taxi (for 3000 AMD) to be reached from Garni temple, but it's really worth to be seen, it's really anchent and as a monastery it's quite unique. It was probably for me one of the best things I have seen in Armenia
