Khor Virap is a place of pilgrimage for Armenians all over the world. According to history annals, Armenian pagan king Trdat imprisoned Saint Gregory the Illuminator in a cave which became known as Khor Virap. He was the first Patriarch of all Armenians. From here one can enjoy the majestic view of mount Ararat (where Noah’s ark has landed according to Bible), not too far runs the Arax river. Khor Virap is the closest point to mount Ararat from the territory of Armenia, the most convenient place for observing and taking pictures of the biblical mountain.
