Khor Virap is a church in the middle of the fertil land towards the Turkish border. The border is completely closed, but it can be said Khor Virap is on the foothills to Ararat. The combination : church on a hill with Ararat in the background is a very popular photo object.
I must admit that my enthusiasm for Armenian churches was reduced when we visited Khor Virap even if it was picturesque.
And of course the cross stones.
