Karahundj (Armenia's Stonehenge), Sisian
(4.4/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Admire the interesting megaliths of Karahundj (Armenia's Stonehenge), an archaeological complex of unknown origin, possibly dating back to the Bronze or Iron Age. Reminiscent of the famed English site, the mysterious stones may have served as a necropolis, a temple, or for astronomical observation. Enjoy the scenic views of the surroundings from the hilltop location, and listen for the whistling sound when the wind blows through the stones' circular punctures.
