Vagharshapat

Armavir is one of the hottest regions in Armenia.
Vagharshapat is located about 18 km west of the capital Yerevan. It is commonly known as Ejmiatsin. Vagharshapat is also called the city of churches.

Vagharshapat survived many wars and sieges, during which it was repeatedly burned and ravaged, but again and again it was rebuilt around the Echmiadzin monastery, the greatest Armenian shrine.
Literally, the name "Echmiadzin" is translated from Armenian as "the only begotten came down".
