Khor Virap monastery
Khor Virap is an Armenian monastery, located near the closed border with Turkey. The monastery is known for its location at the foot of biblical Mount Ararat, upon which, according to the legend, Noah appeared on the Ark after the great flood.
It is one of the shrines of the Armenian Apostolic Church, a place of pilgrimage. Translated from the Armenian, "Khor Virap" means "deep pit". The monastery is located above the underground prison, in which the Armenian King Tiridates III kept St. Gregory the Illuminator in durance.
About 14 years St. Gregory the Illuminator spent in Khor Virap. And no one knows what it all would have been ended, but Tiridates III became seriously ill. The King’s sister Khosrovidukht saw in her dream that only Grigory could heal Tiridates. So he was released. Gregory healed the king with his faith in God, after what he was baptized and made Christianity the state religion. So in 301 Armenia was the first country to adopt Christianity officially.
