Once you happen to be in Armenia, do not miss the chance to visit Pagan Temple of Garni, which  is a  unique pre-Christian structure which was built in 77 AD by Tiridates I. The temple was built in the style of classical Ancient Greek Architecture and was dedicated to the king of the sun Mihr.

After adaptation of Christianity, this site was turned to royal summer residence. Garni temple was damaged by earthquake in 1697, and was reconstructed between 1969 - 1975. Nowadays Garni pagan temple is a must-visit destination for every tourist who visits Armenia. Tourists can visit not only the temple, but also the royal bathhouse, decorated with gorgeous mosaic floor, comprised of 15 natural stones.
