Khor Virap, along side with St Etchmiadzin, Garni and Geghart, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Armenia. It holds a special place in Armenian history, mainly due to the legend of Grigor Louisavoritch (St. Gregory the Illuminator) who was allegedly imprisoned for 13 years in the dungeon of Khor Virap before curing King Trdat III of a disease, hence paving the way for acceptance of Christianity as state religion in 301.     Khor Virap Monastery
