Khor Virap, Lusarat
Categories: Ruins, Tourist Spots
Experience a remarkable view of Mount Ararat near the fenced border with Turkey at Khor Virap. The monastery serves as a pilgrimage site where Armenia's patron saint--Gregory the Illuminator--was imprisoned for 14 years by King Tiridates II. Inside the enclosed compound, explore the elaborate altar in the Church of the Holy Mother of God, as well as a 60 m (200 ft) deep pit-prison built underneath St. Gevorg Chapel. Expect to climb many stairs to reach the monastery, and bring your walking shoes. With our custom trip planner, Lusarat attractions like Khor Virap can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Perched on a small hill amidst the fields, castle-like Khor Virap Monastery has a wonderful setting with Mountain Ararat as backdrop. There is no public transport serving the monastery. Tourists normally come here by local tour or driving.
Day 11.05.2016. The weather was perfect. Everything is full of colours. I had never seen the real beauty of Khor Virap before the day.

Great views on Ararat. At 7:00 a.m. was already opened. Be careful climbing down the well. Close to it there're grape fields.
A must see for everyone visiting Armenia. Make sure you climb down the hole to see where Gregory the illuminator was prisoned.
