The temple is reconstructed so it loose a bit of fascination. But it's located in a great valley and the view it's spectacular, perfect for picture and to start a great journey outside Yerevan.

Even though it was a little bit of walking. It had a beautiful view, and the architecture is amazing. I was expecting more inside, but it was very plain inside. It is hard getting up the stairs so if you have difficulty or are older...More

The excavation works on this site have been going on for decades now, and as a result, Garni temple had been restored beautifully! Temperatures were high today (35+ degrees centigrade) so bring a hat or umbrella and buy some fresh cold mineral water (0.40 euro...More

Pegan temple from 1st century AD.. the only surviving evidence of pegan religion in the entire caucus region before Christianity was enforced on the people of Armenia. It's a beauty and worth a visit.. and it overlooks the gorgeous garni gorge..

Most see this with Geghard monastery. It's ok but maybe I have been lucky seeing cool stuff but I didn't think it was all that spectacular but if you come to see Geghard it's worth seeing.

Not actually Roman, but certainly inspired, this originally pagan temple to a sun god has a great vantage point and has been tastefully restored. It's smaller than you'd expect.

The temple itself was a bit disappointing. It's small with no rooms etc to explore. There's an entrance fee of 1200 AMD for tourists without a guide. The views are amazing though.
