Private tour to Garni( the Pagan temple), Geghard and Arch of Charents. During the tour to Garni,Geghard we will visit: ✅to the only pagan temple of Garni. The structure was built by king Tiridates I in the first century AD as a temple to the sun god Mihr.

The main chapel was built in 1215, the monastery complex was founded in the 4th century by Gregory the Illuminator at the site of a sacred spring inside a cave.
