KHOR VIRAP

According to historian Agatangeghos, King Tiridates III ordered to throw Gregory (who later became the first Catholicos of all Armenians) into the dark dungeon located in royal prison for spreading Christian. The next 13 years Gregory spent imprisoned in this dungeon. In the early Middle Ages in place of the royal prison a small church was built, which was destroyed during the later years. The present monastery was built in 17th century. From the monastery one can admire the beautiful view to the Biblical Mount Ararat.
