Garni

One of Armenia’s must-see sights, the archaeological site of Garni features the remains of the temple and Roman-style baths built in 76 AD on the foundation of stone walls constructed several thousand years earlier. The temple is dedicated to the goddess of the sun, Mythra, and its design follows the theories of geometry laid out by Greeks Plato and Pythagoras. But there’s more. Hike the canyons of the Goghi or Azat River that meet at Garni and watch the sun light up the stone of the temple, one of the most beautiful sights in the country.
