Private Transfer to Garni Temple & Geghard Monastery (UNESCO)
Enjoy a beautiful day to explore the only Pagan Temple not only in Armenia and the Caucasus but in the former USSR, and also you are going to see one of the most unique rock-cut monasteries in the world, the monastery of Geghard. It is a UNESCO Heritage site. The trip will be about 90 KM, from/to Yerevan and it will take about 4-5 hours.
Leaving the frantic pace of the city we are heading towards
Garni Pagan Temple, the only Hellenistic Temple in the Caucasus and the former USSR. Gracing the hillside the pagan temple was dedicated to the God of Sun, Mithra. It was built in 77A.D. by the Armenian King Tiridates I. Proceed to
Geghard Monastery, an incredible ancient Armenian monastery, partly carved out of a mountain. It is said that the Holy Lance that pierced the body of Christ was kept here. The architectural forms and the decoration of Geghard's rock premises show that Armenian builders could not only create superb works of architecture out of stone, but also hew them in solid rock. It is included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
