      Top Descriptions

      Established in 1959, and showcasing one of the world’s largest repositories of ancient manuscripts in a beautifully laid out and well maintained building, the Matenadaran (as it’s most commonly known) is worth a visit even if you have little interest in theology or literature. Some of the books carefully displayed here are over 1,000 years old, and yet much of the colour and detail is still very much preserved. It’s honestly difficult not to be impressed.
