Standing isolated on a hill, Charent's Arch offers some of the best views of Mount Ararat--the legendary mountain where Noah's ark landed after the flood. The arch was designed by a famous Armenian architect Raphael Israyelian and erected in 1957. See the words carved in Armenian alphabet--they're taken from a poem by Yeghisheh Charents, who described Ararat as "an impassable road to glory." The surrounding area provides many hiking and cycling opportunities. Make Charent's Arch part of your personalized Garni itinerary using our Garni route builder site.

  • A beautiful Arch with great view of Ararat mountains and the surrounding areas. I didn't see this place while I was going to Garni Temple.But I visit this place on the way back. This place is amazing for taking photos and videos. Ararat Mountain can be seen so clear from this point, or sometimes you can't see so much of it. It depends on the weather that time. I recommend visiting this place in Spring or Summer time.
  • Nice view
