The Khor Virap Monastery, The Ararat, Armenia

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

In this video by AlexAvsharov, you'll get a view of a famous Armenian Monastery as well as the highest mountain of Turkey.  The Khor Virap Monastery is in the west-central part of the country, near the Turkish border.  It helped to play a crucial role in the conversion of Armenia to Christianity, one of the most important event in the religion's history.  Located on the Ararat Plain, you'll see the peak of Mt. Ararat clearly in the distance.  At 5.1k meters (16.1k ft.) it's the highest peak in Turkey.
