Ararat


Ararat Marz together with Armavir Marz is sharing the main agricultural region of Armenia – Ararat Valley. It has hot climate, its landscape is mainly flat valley of the Arax River south of Yerevan, including the brown hills of the lower Azat and Vedi river watersheds, but including fine green valleys and mountains in the upper reaches, mostly protected within the bounds of the Khosrov Nature Reserve. Ararat Marz is dominated by the double silhouette of Mt. Ararat (now situated just behind of border with Turkey), the sacred symbol of the national consciousness and dreams of the Armenian people, which looms on a clear day close and magical.

 

Khor Virap is as much a popular travel destination as St. Echmiadzin Cathedral, pagan Garni temple and Geghard Monastery. It has its own place in the history of Armenia due to the legend about Grigor Lousavorich (St. Gregory the Illuminator) – the first Armenian Catholicos. Literally translated from Armenian, Khor Virap means “deep pit”, or “deep well”.

 

The monastery has a rich history behind. During the reign of the king Tiridates III Great, Gregory the Illuminator was trying to spread Christianity in Armenia, which was not approved by the pagan ruler. But anyway

 

 

Kaqavaberd also known as Geghi Berd is a fortress located upon a ridge overlooking Azat River gorge at Khosrov State Reserve. The fortified walls of Kakavaberd are well preserved and crown a ridge within the Khosrov State Reserve. It is inaccessible from three of its sides because of the steep terrain. Towers at the north-eastern side are 8 to 10 meters tall. Within the fortress are the ruins of a church and other structures.

 

 

On the territory of Ararat marz are the ruins of another ancient Armenian capital city – Dvin. Built on prehistoric foundations, Dvin's emergence into history begins in 330s, when Arsacid king Khosrov II Kotak (r. 330-338) founded the city on a hill not far from old capital at Artashat (the word “Dvin” is a middle Persian word for “Hill”). Some 150 years after its foundation, in 481 Lord Nerses Bagratuni proclaimed Dvin Armenia's capital.
