The surrounding landscape with the deep gorge of the Azat river and the Geghama mountain range gives the temple a distinct charm.

    Your lunch will be served outdoors, accompanied by a traditional demonstration of baking Lavsh in tondir (oven in the ground). Hot, freshly baked Lavash with cheese and fresh greens, smells fantastic and worth a try.
