Armenia is the first country to adopt Christianity as a state religion in 301 AD

We will explore Echmiadzin, known as “The Descent of the Only Begotten Son,” an ancient capital of Armenia. According to legend, Jesus Christ descended from heaven and designated the spot for a church to be built. The Holy Echmiadzin Cathedral was erected at that site in the 4th century (301-303), marking the dawn of Armenia’s Christian conversion by King Trdat III and Saint Gregory the Illuminator. The Cathedral was constructed atop the pagan temple of Vagharshapat, after it was destroyed by King Trdat. Armenia was the first country in the world to adopt Christianity as its state religion. Echmiadzin serves as the residence of the Supreme Catholicos of all Armenians and the center of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Every seven years, the rite of blessing of holy chrism takes place here, attracting thousands of believers from around the world as pilgrims.

Additionally, we will visit the Zvartnots ruins, a seventh-century cathedral built by Catholicos Nerses the Builder from 641-653.
