Armenians are the first nation in the world to adopt Christianity as a State Religion. Echmiadzin is the center of the Armenian Church. It is where the Catholicos Of All Armenians lives, and the location of the Ejmiatsin Cathedral. The main church structure is pretty large, however the majority of the interior is dedicated to uses other than worship and the area you enter is much smaller than the size of the entire complex. Here we also visit the Museum of Echmiadzin. For the purpose of storing the relics and gifts to Armenian Church three more buildings were added to the cathedral in 1869. They are used as the temple's museum which was open in 1955. The next step is the huge Memorial Complex in Armenia. It is the Memorial Complex of Sardarapat with the State Ethnographic Museum of Armenia. It is a must visit for anyone interested in not only the modern history of Armenian people, but also for those who are eager to see numerous interesting samples dating to the ancient period. After walking through the Sardarapat memorial copmlex we continue our way to another region in Armenia  Aragatsotn region. In the village Byurakan we  check-in a wonderful hotel.
