Probably one of the most famous attractions in Armenia - this is the only surviving Roman Pagan temple dedicated to sun god . Attracts a lot of tourists since it is close to Yerevan. Is it worth a visit and the entrance fee- probably not...More

Most see this with Geghard monastery. It's ok but maybe I have been lucky seeing cool stuff but I didn't think it was all that spectacular but if you come to see Geghard it's worth seeing.

Not actually Roman, but certainly inspired, this originally pagan temple to a sun god has a great vantage point and has been tastefully restored. It's smaller than you'd expect.

The temple itself was a bit disappointing. It's small with no rooms etc to explore. There's an entrance fee of 1200 AMD for tourists without a guide. The views are amazing though.

It was finally good to see a non-church building outside of Yerevan. It's in a remote location which adds to the atmosphere...the standing temple isn't that big so it's probably not worth going out of the way for...most people visit it with Geghard Monastery...

Arranged a private trip through our hotel to get here. It was cheap to enter and it is situated in amazing countryside. It was worth it for the surrounding views alone. There was not a lot of information about the temple, which has been rebuilt,...More
