It is already no secret that Armenia is a land of ancient history that goes back to the very beginning of civilization. Garni, one of the oldest cultural heritage sightseeings in the country, is an outstanding temple that will impress you from so many aspects. Learn about the temple’s history, the fortress, the ancient baths around it, and why it is so iconic anyway? HISTORY When you first see Garni in front of you, it won’t remind you of anything very special. It may look plain and simple. However, it is an uncommon temple to see in Armenia, in fact, the only one preserved from the pagan times. Garni was built in the first century AD but collapsed in 1679 because of an earthquake, the temple was reconstructed. If you pay attention to the lack of carvings, you will be able to tell the difference between the new and old stones. The temple was dedicated to the god of the sun - Mihr. Since Armenians adopted Christianity in 301 AD, Garni lost its initial purpose and was used as a summer residence for the kings. THE FORTRESS AND THE BATHS The temple is actually within the area of Garni fortress. It used to contain the temple, churches, as well as Roman Baths. It was finalized from 3rd to 1st century BC. The fortress is believed to be of great importance during the Hellenistic period and had also served as a great defense hotspot. Though it was ruined in 59 AD, the fortress was restored again, this time with Garni temple built alongside it. Nowadays, ruins of the fortress are still present when you visit Garni. You can walk around the area and feel the history in every stone. Don’t forget to look in front of you - the view of nature in front of you is indescribable. Besides the fortress and the temple, don’t miss out the Bath House. The way the House was constructed with its many rooms is in the model of traditional Roman baths. The rooms consisted of cold water, hot water, steaming rooms, and others. Perhaps, the most interesting part of the House is the mosaic which contains Greek inscription and tells a story of goddess Thetis and other creatures. WHAT IS SO ICONIC ABOUT THE TEMPLE? When you look at the temple, it appears easy to go inside and walk around. However, the stairs are built to be very hard to climb, as in to display your respect towards the gods and how you struggle to reach to worship them. Once you get to check out the inside of the temple, there is a mix of new and old stones and historical worship spots. And because Armenians converted to Christianity a long time ago, Garni is one of the exceptional cases of a pagan temple to survive and continues to impress thousands of visitors year around. Garni temple is an extremely popular destination for tourists in Armenia and it is for a reason. The temple and the area around it speak volumes about the nation’s history and how far it has come. From exploring history through the fortress to imagining what the many celebrations looked like during the Pagan times, Garni is a must place to visit. Include it in your travel itinerary and plan your trip with Caucasus Holidays!

As spring arrives in Armenia, the first major holiday is around the corner. Armenia is one of the many countries that celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th. Marked as a public holiday, this is a non-working day in the country. WHY IS INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY IMPORTANT? March 8th is of crucial importance to celebrate women’s rights and their role in society. It was first highlighted back in 1910 and later adopted by the United Nations in 1975 as International Women’s Day. Though still not so popular in some countries, March 8th is a big deal for Armenians. HOW DO ARMENIANS CELEBRATE MARCH 8? As the holiday marks the beginning of spring and freshness, March 8 is often associated with beauty, femininity, and flowers. On this day, women particularly receive attention from their male partners, family members, friends, coworkers, and even strangers. If you are in the capital on March 8th, you will see young boys handing out flowers to women and girls on the streets, as part of the celebration activities organized by Yerevan Municipality. Sometimes, the municipalities also organize concerts or live performances on the streets. Companies organize corporate gatherings, pubs and cafes organize parties and events, and restaurants are almost always fully booked. It has also recently become a tradition for many women’s rights organizations and active groups to organize a march on this day. With this, they highlight the real purpose of the holiday - recognizing women’s rights and how far they have come throughout history. WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT MARCH 8TH IN ARMENIA? While the rest of the world marks only one day, Armenia celebrates a whole month dedicated to women! March 8th sets the beginning and the month concludes with celebrations on April 7th, which is the day of Motherhood and Beauty. While March 8th is for all women, April 7th is particularly about showing appreciation to our mothers. Start the beginning of spring with flowers, beauty, and elegance. March 8th is around the corner and so are the big celebrations. This year, make the International Women’s Day memorable by visiting Armenia. At Caucasus Holidays, we will be sure to make it extra special for you!

WHY POMEGRANATE SYMBOL IS SO FAMOUS IN ARMENIA? If you ask Armenians what are some of the country’s famous symbols, pomegranate will definitely be on the list. It has been involved in Armenia’s history line for so many aspects: mythology, art, food, drinks and so much more. So, what is it that makes pomegranate so special for Armenia? MYTHOLOGY Besides being delicious just by itself (we’ll get to the food and drink part later), pomegranate represents fertility and prosperity. Historically, the newlyweds were given a scattered pomegranate to have many children during their lives together. The fruit is also famous in other aspects of Armenian mythology. It is said that the pomegranate contains 365-366 seeds which are equivalent to the days of the year. Hence, the fruit is celebrated as a symbol of life. Because of its health benefits, it is also believed that pomegranate keeps us out from the evil spirits. ART Perhaps the most famous movie with the pomegranate is Sergey Parajanov’s masterpiece “The Color of Pomegranate”, displaying Armenia’s undefeatable soul. The fruit can be seen in countless paintings of famous Armenian artists. It is a muse for many until this day. One famous work is by a beloved artist Martiros Saryan who showed this symbolic fruit in his famous painting “Under Pomegranate Tree”. Armenian Manuscripts dating back to sixth or seventh century contained pomegranate in their illustrations for religious connotations of Christianity and the blood of Christ. To this day, pomegranates can be found anywhere in Armenian markets in any form: necklace, painting, house souvenir, ceramics, and so much more. Even the official logo of the State Tourism Committee in Armenia contains pomegranate in it – so the fruit is basically our symbol for promoting tourism of the country. FOOD AND WINE In the sense of the actual usage of the fruit, Armenians love to use it in different recipes, cut and eat it just by itself, or make wine out of it! It is believed to have many advantages for health so it is very common to see pomegranate on the table in Armenian households. It is a long and time consuming process to cut the fruit and separate the seeds but it is something the whole family gets excited about, especially children. The fruit is used in many salads and main dishes both as a decoration and an ingredient. The shells don’t go to waste either - they are considered to be great remedy when mixed with other ingredients. And finally, besides eating the fruit, Armenians have also found the way to make wine out of it. Semi Sweet pomegranate wine is a hit in Armenia, so be sure to give it a try when you are around. This wonderful fruit along with many known health benefits, in Armenian culture, shows strength, life and prosperity. Being a muse for so many Armenian artists to this day, pomegranate can be found in any artform in Sunday markets, if you are looking for the perfect Armenian souvenir. Discover the many stories of this famous symbol of the country with Caucasus Holidays!

It is no secret that Armenians have been making wine for over 6,000 years. This astonishing number is backed from meticulous excavations in Areni Cave by Armenian-American and Irish archaeologists back in 2007. These findings gave a new catalyst for the Armenian wine producers to ameliorate their winemaking practices and educate the society on the noble tradition of wine drinking. The huge interest towards Armenian wine has given birth to amazing festivals such as YereWine Days (usually celebrated in May) and Areni Wine Festival (celebrated in October). Areni Wine Festival Areni Wine Festival is the major wine festival of Armenia. It was first organized in 2009. The peculiarity of the festival is that it takes place immediately next to the famous Areni Cave, which is considered to be the very first cradle of wine. In fact, Areni Cave is the oldest winery cave ever discovered in the world. Imagine, how much will you enjoy attending a wine festival near the world’s oldest winery. This is surely going to be a remarkable experience and a day to remember! As it is Armenia’s greatest wine festival, it goes without saying that you will be drinking a lot of wine. Actually, you will have a sheer opportunity to try the most popular Armenian wines that are quite successful in the local and European market. You just cannot miss this chance to taste wines of the country that is factually the pioneer of winemaking. The opening ceremony of Areni Wine Festival begins with a colourful and remarkable parade of winemakers, followed by different competitions, songs and dances. Yerevan Wine Days If you are travelling to Armenia in May you definitely have to find some time to attend Yerevan Wine Days. This two-day festival, open-air party, wine lovers gathering or call it the way you like brings together thousands of people from different countries to taste Armenian wine.

Armenia is one of the oldest countries in the world with a recorded history of about 3500 years. One of the most important fields in Armenian history is architecture. Traditional Armenian architecture, developed early into the middle ages, is largely inspired by Greek and Roman architecture. Pre-Christian architecture in Armenia The history of Armenian architecture is, in reality, the history of the development of a single type of building: the church. But we know very sophisticated building techniques were in use in Armenia and a strong architectural tradition in stone was exercised for more than a thousand years before the first church was built. Urartu Unfortunately, only a handful of pre-Christian examples has survived and they are from three distinct epochs: Urartian, Hellenistic, and late Roman. A considerable number of temples and fortified garrison cities are known belonging to the kingdom of Urartu (9th to the 6th centuries B.C.), the most famous examples being the garrisons of Erebuni and Karmir Blur in Soviet Armenia. urartu_armenia Garni At the site of Garni, some fifty kilometers northeast of modern Yerevan, a number of important constructions survive from three different periods. Garni is the only pagan temple in Christian Armenia. garni_armenia Christian architecture in Armenia Beside these limited ancient examples and the urban architecture of the twentieth century in the Armenia Republic, Armenian architecture is essentially that of church buildings, thus a Christian architecture. Its productive history spans the period from the 4th to the 17th century. Though it should be noted that in modern times, especially in the diaspora, churches continued to be built and are now being erected in large numbers, scholars have not yet studied this phenomenon, leaving modern Armenian church architecture rootless and for the moment outside the art historical tradition. noravank_armenia Thousands of Armenian churches were built during the long history of Christianity. They varied in size from very small to large. Some churches were intended to stand alone, while others were parts of monasteries. A large number of types were developed, providing a great variety of exterior shapes and interior volumes. Come and explore the history of Armenia with us. Take our Pilgrimage tour and let’s discover hidden gems of Armenia together!
