On the southern slope of the highest mountain in modern Armenia, Mount Aragats, facing the Ararat Valley, there is a fortress-castle Amberd, which was in the Middle Ages the ancestral possession of the Armenian princes of Pahlavuni. In 1026, at the behest of the famous military commander Vahram Pahlavuni, one of the best churches in its noble elegance was built in the fortress, on a harsh cliff.
Mount Aragats is located in the Aragatsotn region. The mountain has four peaks and in the past was one of the deepest volcanoes. Aragats is a favorite place for both tourists and local sports and mountaineering enthusiasts.
