Zvartnots (which means "Temple of the Biting Angels" in Armenian) is a temple of early medieval Armenian architecture. In 2000, the ruins of the temple and the archaeological territory surrounding it were included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The foundation of Zvartnots Reservation in 1900‒1907 is determined by the initiative of Ejmiatsin’s friar Khachik Archimandrite Dadyan. It is also determined by the exceptional historical-architectural role of the ruins of Zvartnots or St. Gregory the Illuminator Church (constructed in 641‒652) and the adjacent constructions, and by the value of the historical-archeological finds. Zvartnots or St. Gregory the Illuminator Church and the adjoining structures were revealed during the excavations headed by architect Toros Toramanyan, in 1904.
“Zvartnots” Historical-Architectural Museum-Reservation is located in the Province of Armavir, in Zvartnots District of town Ejmiatsin, on the left side of the highway Yerevan‒Ejmiatsin, 15 km. to the west of Yerevan. Directly in front of the entrance of the museum-reservation has been placed a memorial of an eagle, on a high pedestal. The entrance requires payment.
Excursions in Armenian, Russian and English are organized for visitors in the museum-reservation.
