Arranged a private trip through our hotel to get here. It was cheap to enter and it is situated in amazing countryside. It was worth it for the surrounding views alone. There was not a lot of information about the temple, which has been rebuilt,...More
The only standing Greco-Roman temple in Armenia. Very well preserved. Situated on a cliff overlooking the Azat river in a ravine. The exact construction date is unknown, probably around 77 BC. Nearby also a Roman bath with parts of the mosaic floor. Very interesting alternative...More
