Garni Temple, Yerevan (Armenia)
Garni Temple is in a very strategic location, on a cliff, overlooking a range of the Geghama Mountains and Azat River near the Ararat Plain. Built in mid-1st century CE, the temple survived the destruction of pagan temples and countless invasions until its collapse in 1679 CE. It is best known structure and symbol of pre Christian Armenia. The temple was dedicated to the sun of God called as Mihr. But when Armenia took to Christianity in 4th century this temple was converted into a Royal Summer House. Garni is also an exemplary example of great geometrical design.
