Standing isolated on a hill, Charent's Arch offers some of the best views of Mount Ararat--the legendary mountain where Noah's ark landed after the flood. The arch was designed by a famous Armenian architect Raphael Israyelian and erected in 1957. See the words carved in Armenian alphabet--they're taken from a poem by Yeghisheh Charents, who described Ararat as "an impassable road to glory." The surrounding area provides many hiking and cycling opportunities. Make Charent's Arch part of your personalized Garni itinerary using our Garni route builder site .

  • Built in 1957 in honor of Armenian poet Yeghisheh Charents. They say Charents loved this place and often visited. The author of the building is the prominent architect Rafayel Israyelyan. From this arc and facing balcony opens a breathtaking view of Ararat, what is considered the most extraordinary view of the biblical mountain. The arc you can find the following lines, written by Yeghisheh Charents: "pass the whole world with its White Mountains, the beauty of Masis equal to none!"
