Beautiful temple & scenery, it's a small place...won't take more than 40-45 minutes visit. The architecture is wonderful and worth admiring.

In the picture, it looks like very a huge temple but if you see it with your eyes it not as big as you imagined.
The good of this temple, it was preserved and reconstructed again.
When you went up and went inside you will only see a cella - maybe a place offering for the pagan gods.
If you look up the wall ceiling, you will see how beautiful the curve and the architecture style of each other.
One of the place you will visit if your in Armenia.
A place you can relax and talk with other tourists.
Be sure to bring your camera.

One of the oldest surviving Pagan building which was later converted to place of worship for Christians. A long cobbled pathway leading to this building on a raised platform is a treat to the eyes. The striving efforts of developing a park around the temple can be acknowledged. The raise (Staircase) is so steep and the tread is so narrow. Hence, not advisable for aged persons to climb up.

We visited this amazing place in December and we experienced stunning landscapes around the temple. The main building has 24 columns and a large hall. It was established for Mitraism and in following years it was changed to a christian cathederal.
