Khachkar Park

Khachkar Park is located in the Kentron administrative district of Yerevan, near the ՛՛Republic Square՛՛ metro station. The park was built in 2014. It is fully installed with outdoor lighting as well as three fountain complexes. 17 khachkars are erected in the park. The khachkars are carved like the original khachkars of Western Armenia and Old Julfa.

Khachkar (cross-stone) is unique for Armenian medieval Christian art. Armenia is home to over 30000 khachkars, the largest open-air collection located at the cemetery of the Noratus village. Khachkars are inscribed in UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list.
