Lusarat

Lusarat ( until 1968, Khor Virap or Shikhlar ) is a village in the Ararat Province of Armenia. It is situated adjacent to the Turkish-Armenian border and Khor Virap Monastery. In the village is a statue of an early 20th-century Armenian fedayi( armed defensive militia units that voluntarily defended the territory from outside forces ).

Khor Virap Monastery continues to be a holy site of the Armenian Apostolic Church and an important pilgrimage location which locals often visit for a baptism or after a wedding to perform a “matagh” or “sacrifice,” often of sheep or chicken. The walled, religious complex also stands before the snowcapped flanks of Mount Ararat, offering a spectacular view of the mountain and cutting a striking silhouette in and of itself.
