Wonderful sight over a deep ravined landscape. Heard choral music. However, very steep steps that I could not get up to get inside. Watch out for local honey sellers nearby.
A roundup of our tour in Yerevan and its neighboring areas. Below are some of the places we have visited: 1. Republic Square The Republic Square in the Armenian capital - Yerevan is a stunning place in this enchanting country. The place itself has oval shape and patterns made from stone look like an Armenian rug if looked from above.... More
The temple is built by Armenian king in 8 BC, it was destructed in the earthquake and rebuilt again. It has historical graphics and monuments and very great details! It also contains heat watered bath and floor mosaics! It's 10min far from Yeghard monastery so you can visit both in 2hours maximum; not far from Yerevan, 40-50min by car. Lovely... More
This temple PRE-DATES Christianity!!!! The temple itself is ancient. It was built in Hellenistic times (4BC to 1AD) by Armenians. From the top, there are fantastic views of the surrounding countryside, wonderful in Autumn. This temple has evidence of underfloor hot air heating and baths. The mosaics are 'to be seen to be believed'.
Although Garni village has little to recommend it - apart from some very interesting old Lada and Moskva cars and a lovely garden restaurant - the Hellenic Temple is well worth a visit. The buildings are of limited interest, but the site is in a stunning location with excellent views down valleys and ravines and up to the mountains.
The temple very old and good enough to visit. It is located on the way to Gegard. So in the day you are visiting Geghard you can visit Garni too. it's beautiful & wonderful. There are some natural spring water in Garni. once you drink, you'll drink more & more. It is very delicious. even more than the water spring... More

Garni is the only complete temple left in armenia after christianism was accepted as the national releigon year 301 ... It is veryyy beautiful and the natural beauty surrounding it is breathtaking.. Do notmiss it
The Garni Temple is a pagan temple which dates from the 1st century AD. It was originally part of a complex of buildings which made up a fortress. Remains of a bathhouse give an idea of life 2000 years ago.
the temple itself is a restored greek temple, quite fine by itself, but the main attraction is the views from the grounds. the site overlooks a deep valley and a national park. this is a short trip from yerevan and should be combined with a visit to geghard.
