#5 of 8 in Things to do in Garni
Standing isolated on a hill, Charent's Arch offers some of the best views of Mount Ararat--the legendary mountain where Noah's ark landed after the flood. The arch was designed by a famous Armenian architect Raphael Israyelian and erected in 1957. See the words carved in Armenian alphabet--they're taken from a poem by Yeghisheh Charents, who described Ararat as "an impassable road to glory." The surrounding area provides many hiking and cycling opportunities. Make Charent's Arch part of your personalized Garni itinerary using our Garni route builder site .

  • An experience in its own. This place is so surreal and looks beautiful with snow ladden. You can see the amount of work that must have gone into building this. Try the fresh almond and walnut bread available right outside this place.
