Every year in October the residents and visitors celebrate the birthday of our city. Even a special state commission is formed to help to prepare for the capital's jubilee. We will leave Yerevan for a short time to visit Kotayk Province and discover Geghard monastery, which was founded in the XIII century. In 2000 Geghard Monastery was inscribed on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Not far from Geghard we will also visit the pagan temple of Garni. Most of the travellers always combine these two sites, that is why it is also called Garni-Geghard tour. The Temple of Garni often hosts Armenian religious concerts. We will be one of those lucky guests, who will attend this spiritual concert during our exploratory mission. After the concert we will come back to Yerevan and enjoy our free time.
