  • Geghard Monastery, Garni Temple, the Cathedral and Churches of Echmiadzin, Zvartnots Temple


Your one-day tour of Garni and Geghard begins with a pickup from your Yerevan hotel. Drive to the Geghard Monastery, a magnificent UNESCO World Heritage site. Nestled within a landscape of towering cliffs, this monastery complex is a work of medieval Armenian architecture. Geghard, with its churches and tombs carved from living rock, is the pinnacle of Armenian spiritual artistry. Founded after Armenia's conversion to Christianity in the fourth century, it is a testament to the country's enduring faith and ingenuity.

Your Armenia travel itinerary then leads to the Garni Temple, Armenia's only pre-Christian surviving structure. Dedicated to Mitra, the Sun God, this Hellenistic temple represents the rich tapestry of Armenian religious history before Christianity. Garni's classical columns rise against the landscape, serving as a stark reminder of Armenia's ancient roots and diverse spiritual heritage.

The journey continues to another UNESCO World Heritage Site: the Cathedral and Churches of Echmiadzin. Built in the sixth century, Echmiadzin Cathedral is revered as the spiritual nucleus of the Armenian Apostolic Church and one of the world's oldest Christian cathedrals.

En route back to Yerevan, the ruins of Zvartnots Temple provide a poignant end to this spiritual journey. The monument, erected in the 7th century, was destroyed by an earthquake in the 10th.

Conclude your one-day tour of Garni and Geghard with a return to Yerevan and a drop-off at your hotel.
