SIGHTS - Khor-Virap


Khor Virap

The Khor Virap is an Armenian Apostolic Church monastery located in the Ararat plain in Armenia.From the territory of the monastery, appears Biblical Mount Ararat, in all its grandeur and in all its glory,the symbol of Armenia and all Armenians.

Khor Virap's notability as a monastery and pilgrimage site is attributed to the fact that Grigor Lusavorich, who later became Saint Gregory the Illuminator, was initially imprisoned here for 13 years by King Tiridates III of Armenia. Saint Gregory subsequently became the king's religious mentor, and they led the proselytizing activity in the country. In the year 301, Armenia was the first country in the world to be declared a Christian nation. A chapel was initially built in 642 AD at the site of Kirat Virap by Nerses III the Builder as a mark of veneration to Saint Gregory.
