Charents Arch

Charents Arch is located on the road to Garni and is used as a spectacular place to view Mt. Ararat and her valley. On a clear day it provides a simply spectacular view. This monument (architect: Raphael Israyelian) was erected in 1957. The site has a breathtaking view of Mount Ararat from here. The words carved on the arch belong to one of Armenia's most famous poets, Yeghisheh Charents (1897-1937), and locals refer to the arch as Charents Arch. In 1930, as the political situation in Soviet Armenia changed, Charents' views became completely at odds with the totalitarian regime of the ruling powers. Charents became a victim of that same totalitarian regime when he was killed in 1937, one of the millions murdered during the Great Purge. The words that run the length of the arch are from Charents' poem «For My Sweet Armenia» and read: It’s written on the arch : Travel the world: you will never find a crest as pure as Ararat's, As an impassible road to glory, I love my Masis Mountain.
