Location: Yerevan, Armenia

More UNESCO site

The Genocide Memorial, with the eternal flame, 12 'petals' on the structure representing the 12 cities destroyed. The memorial wall on the left depicts the names of the twelve cities which were wiped out. One and a half million people. .......no photos were allowed inside the memorial, but who would want to take any pictures!

The Genocide Memorial, the wall of flags of countries who recognise the genocide. The flag of the UK is not there.

The valley to the Geghard Monastery, a narrow access!

The Ararat Arch above the city

Hmmmm

The monastery set high up in the valley.

The fourth century temple, BC built on the site of the pagan temple

The caves where the monks wrote their manuscripts, many of which are in the Mashtot Library in Yerevan.

A duduk player! The flute is made from the national tree, the apricot.

In the street leading to the temple, we found a baker making traditional bread with her oven underground.

All that is left of the royal palace

and a typical back yard, with toilet, water butt and chickens
