Ejmiatsin Things to Do: 13 reviews and 19 photos
One of the rooms underground at corners of the church within St. Hripsime's Church is a room where one lights candles and sends prayers to God.
In the picture you can see stones leaning against the wall with Armenian text written on them. They are prayers carved into stone many centuries ago and these stones were found within the church at various point where they were collected and displayed in this underground prayer room. You can also see khachkars with are "stone crosses" carved within the stones of the walls.
Proudly said, we lighted a candle at every monastary and church we visited within Armenia... Even at Yerevuyk church where no one had visited the site for many months maybe.
Directions: Underneath The ground within St. Hripsime's Church at one of the corners down the stairs.
