The only remained pagan temple in South caucasus Sep 18, 2014
Garni Temple the only remained pagan temple in Armenia. There is no exact evidence as to when the fortress of Garni was founded. According to one Bronze Age settlement found during archeological excavation it dates back to the 22nd Century B. C. Yer Garni temple has been rebuilt and took its modern appearance during the 1st century A. C. by the Armenian King Tiridates I. To the side of the temple is a Roman bathhouse, nicely preserved. The hill above the baths affords more opportunities for appreciating the site’s scale and enjoying views over the area.
