The Garni grandmothers sell dried apricot sweets and their "branded" gata right at the entrance: it's definitely worth a try! According to legend, the monastery was founded during the early years of Christianity's acceptance as the official religion (at the beginning of the 4th century).

The Geghard or Geghardavank complex consists of a two-story monolithic stone temple and an adjacent church. Geghard was named after Longinus' spear, which pierced Christ's body and was stored in Etchmiadzin before being displayed to visitors.

Geghard Monastery is a one-of-a-kind human creation. The halls dug into the basalt rock are large and have unique bas-reliefs on their walls, each of which is a separate work of art.
