The monastery is built in a place of great historical and religious significance for Armenia. The name "Khor Virap" means "deep dungeon". An old dungeon pit can still be seen on the territory of the monastery. It was here that St. Gregory the Illuminator, the founder of Christianity in Armenia, spent 14 years in prison. The history of the monastery is inextricably linked to the adoption and spread of Christianity in Armenia as the state religion. Thousands of believers annually come on pilgrimage to this holy place. Khor Virap Monastery is famous not only for its architecture, but also for its deep pit, which has a fascinating history.
