Charent's Arch, Garni

(25+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Charent's Arch on your holiday in Garni, and find out what else Garni has to offer, use our Garni trip itinerary maker.

  • I liked the idea to install arch in situ observation deck to give a certain solemnity of the moment of observation of Ararat. But I had no luck, it almost was not visible due to fog. But the cool arch.

  • ... but the arch itself is nothing special. Also it is much further from Garni and much closer to the city as google maps suggest. but you don't have to look for it, it'c clearly seen from the road.  more »
