Tour To Christian Armenia for Prayer And Intercession of Saints

The Holy Mother of God is adorable and lovely by all Christians. People from all over the world ask for her protection. Armenians do the same. Various churches and monasteries called after her are proof of the great love of Armenians.

According to a legend, one of the apostles carried with him a canvas with the depicted face of Mary on it. For a long time, the canvas was kept in the Hogyats monastery (Monastery of the soul). Unfortunately, it was lost in ancient times.
