  • The Memorial is built directly on the site of the battle, on the hill where the participants of the battle were buried. in height on which the monument is a panoramic view of the river Araks Ararat Valley. There is a possibility of a broad review of the battlefield, the locations of the troops and the conduct of hostilities.

  • It should be noted that a single visit here we did not anticipate. Memorial colossi of the Soviet era, albeit with an accent, not the first thing we want to see in the country. But we rode in Metsamor (more precisely, Taronik) and almost hopped on the way here to the village of Araks. Aesthetic terms is not the most expressive Memorial. It was built in memory of the battle of the Armenians under the leadership of General Andranik from the Turks in the year 1918. Armenians won her and thus saved their country from Turkish oppression. But whom symbolize the giant bulls and the Eagles, we eventually figure out do not become, because the idea of the monument is ambiguous-it is pamjanik not only persistence and courage of the defenders of their homeland, but also mutual hatred of the two peoples, in principle, does not deserve the interest in detail.
