Visited this place on the way to Garni Pagan temple, it is an arch and a viewing platform to Mount Ararat. If you are lucky, you can see it. The deserts/vegetation you can see from above are also nice. Some people are selling food and souvenirs there too. Overall a quick stop of 5 to 10 minutes.

Beautiful Mount Ararat view
Aug 2018
On the way to Yerevan to Garni this beautiful site will be visible. One must be careful as Snow capped mount is not clearly seen but if the weather is good and sunny definitely the view will be clearer.

It's the view and not the arch
Aug 2018 • Friends
The arch is dedicated to Yeghishe Charent who is considered the most important modern Armenian poet. The arch in itself is unremarkable but it is allegedly one of the best view points of Armenia, with Yerevan and its feet and Mount Ararat in full view.
We drove by on a very hazy day so it was not exactly worth a stop - but then it only takes 5 minutes to look around and leave.

its a monument with spectacular views of Mount Ararat and plains of Armenia.. its built as a tribute to Armenian poet Yeghishe Charents.. we were lucky to have a choir group singing in the arch when we got there.. awesome views with classic music, you cant really ask for more..

Stunning view and the arch
Jan 2018 • Friends
Before going to Garni and Geghard, you will encountered in the road this beautiful arch.
You will see the majestic Mt. Ararat and the hills that covered with snow.
I came here during winter, better bring winter outfit whereas the location is very much cold and also don't forget the camera for your souvenirs

More Information Needed At A Gorgeous Site

Stopped enroute to Garni and Gephard. The views were nice and the Arch is impressive, but I would have dearly loved to know WHY the arch is there and exactly WHO Charents is.

One of the best place to see Mt. Ararat
Apr 2017
Located conveniently on the road to Garni, you won't miss this place. Described as the best place to watch Mt. Ararat, it is indeed one of the best. What makes it even more beautiful is that Mt. Ararat (as a backdrop) will be in a contrast with greenish hills as the forefront object. Too bad I went there when Mt. Ararat wasn't clearly visible, so the photo I took were mostly mediocre.
