Info about Echmiadzin

878 m

Echmiadzin, the holiest town and spiritual capital of Armenia, is located in the Aramvir province, about 20 kilometres from Yerevan.
The city lies in the shadow of Mt. Ararat, which is a dormant volcano. The valley has the most fertile soil in Western Asia and its early inhabitants were the pioneers in the cultivation of wheat, grapes and apricot.
Echmiadzin is characterized by dry sub-tropical climate with cool summers and snowy winters. Spring and autumn are the best seasons to visit.
Echmiadzin was the base for the earliest Bronze Age civilizations. Once covered with thick forests, the place was converted into a heavily cultivated land during this era.
The city is also the abode of the most diverse wildlife population in Western Asia and many endangered bird-species can be spotted here during their seasonal migration.
