This is a complex of artistically designed stairs, sculptures, fountains and flower gardens. Cascade is built of milk tuff. It connects the lower and upper part of the city. In front of the Cascade there is a monument to Tamanyan, the architect of modern Yerevan. Thanks to Tamanyan today we have such a beautiful and harmonious city.

The third day of the tour begins with a trip to the temple of Zvartnots - the ruins of the pagan temple of the Celestial Angels or the Bending Forces. After the adoption of Christianity, all architectural monuments of paganism were destroyed, and only a few have survived to this day.

Before the XX century on the place of the temple there was a plain desert. An architectural value was discovered during the excavations. According to legend, the temple was built on the road, where King Trdat III came out to greet Gregory the Illuminator.

The next stop is the Etchmiadzin Cathedral, the religious center of Armenia and all Armenians. According to the legend, Christ appeared to Gregory the Illuminator and with the fiery hammer pointed the place of the Holy Cathedral. On that very place the first temple in Armenia was built. The name Etchmiadzin in translation means "the place of the descent of the only begotten".

The program includes a visit to the Etchmiadzin Museum. It is a unique storage of priceless treasures. Here are stored the relics of John the Baptist, part of the spear that pierced Christ, part of the crown of thorns, a piece of Noah's Ark, the relics of the Apostles Thomas, Thaddeus, Bartholomew, Andrew the First-Called, and much more.

The last stop is St. Hripsime church (VII century). It is connected with the story of the Virgin Hripsime. According to legend, Hripsime was one of the Christians who ran away Rome in 301. The virgins found refuge in Armenia. King Trdat fell in love with her and wished to take her as his wife. Hripsime refused him and falling into a rage king ordered to execute the maidens including Hripsime. After death, all the virgins were canonized. Hripsime is buried in the crypt under the altar of the church.

The temple was built in 76 BC by the Romans in honor of the god Mithra. The classical Greek style of the temple with the columns is located on the edge of the gorge. From the temple you can admire the gorge and the Symphony of Stones. The natural monument with a unique name is actually a cliff formed from frozen lava. During the tour to Garni you will see ancient baths with painted mosaics, the ruins of an ancient fortress and try freshly baked Garni bread.

The road from the temple leads up the gorge to the monastery of Geghard. The monastery is surrounded by steep cliffs.

Khor Virap played a key role in the life of Gregory the Illuminator. King Trdat sent Gregory the Illuminator to prison for preaching Christianity for 13 years. Khor Virap became the prison for Gregory the Illuminator. The word khor virap is literally translated as a deep pit.

After the adoption of Christianity, a chapel was built on the pit, later the church of Khor Virap was built. From the monastery complex you will enjoy the most breathtaking view of Mount Ararat. For a moment it may seem that you may touch the snow-covered slopes of the sacred mountain by if you simply reach out your hand.
