Khor Virap

Back to home

Khor Virap's place is fixed by the founder of the Armenian Church, Grigor Lusavorich (Gregory the Illunminator). The story of his imprisonment at Khor Virap and ministry is as much a story of the survival of the Armenian Kingdom as it is of the conversion of the country to Christianity.
