  • The statue of the man riding the horse, the exuberant with two convicted front-facing legs is a symbol of the pride of Christian Armenia, which succeeded in spite of the defeat in battle, to preserve Christianity, especially because of the determination of the great and Ardennes, who fought with a small army of the common people, which was one third of the Zoroastrian army of Persia. , Heavily armed and mounted on a duranwar elephant. Vardon himself was captured and executed by the Persians, along with seven other generals. But thanks to the same battle, and the right of the Armenian pride of the Armenians, Christianity continued to be the state religion, despite the fact that the Persians wanted to force the Armenians their religious religion
