We visited this amazing place in December and we experienced stunning landscapes around the temple. The main building has 24 columns and a large hall. It was established for Mitraism and in following years it was changed to a christian cathederal.

I really enjoyed this classical Greek looking temple way out here in Armenia. There are stunning views of the surrounding valley. Also on site some small bath restorations that really need a little more work. But nice visit.

It's amazing to see a temple which was build 55-88 AD, of course most parts are recounstracted, but still seeing some of the stones actually carved 2000 years ago. Btw this is only pegan temple preserved in Armenia.
