Wikipedia picture of the day on July 19, 2018: The Temple of Garni (lit. “pagan temple of Garni”) is a classical Hellenistic temple in Garni, Armenia. It is perhaps the best-known structure and symbol of pre-Christian Armenia and was probably built by king Tiridates I in the first century AD as a temple to the sun god Mihr. According to some scholars it was not a temple but a tomb and thus survived the universal destruction of pagan structures. It collapsed in a 1679 earthquake and reconstructed between 1969 and 1975. https://ift.tt/2zQgxBJ

Wikipedia picture of the day on July 13, 2018: Arches in the interior of the church of Holy Mother of God Narthex within the Sanahin Monastery complex, Lori Province, Armenia. Sanahin literally translates from Armenian as “this one is older than that one”, presumably representing a claim to having an older monastery than the neighbouring Haghpat Monastery. The Armenian Apostolic monastery was built in the 10th century in Armenian style and has become a tourist magnet. https://ift.tt/2ujLlFT
