K'aghak' Yerevan Things to Do: 14 reviews and 14 photos
Erebuni, on a hilltop in the southern part of the city is the original site of Yerevan. Visitors can see the partially excavated remains of the site of the city together with interesting objects found there which are now housed in a worthwhile museum at the bottom of the hill.
Erebuni was discovered by chance in 1950 during exploration of Arin Berd Monastery which had later been built on the site. An English speaking guide is available in the museum as well as a booklet giving a brief description in five languages.
museum is closed on Mondays but open the rest of the week from 10:30am to 4:00pm. There is a cover charge to get into the museum building (somewhere in the neighborhood of US $2.00). There are many many steps leading to the hill top ruins from the museum building one can climb but it's tedious and for adventurous only. The rest of us can get to the ruins by car by driving road next to the museum north and making a left on one of the dirt roads leading to the hill top.
