''Builder eagle''

The monument is located on the Yerevan-Etchmiadzin road and was built in 1966. It serves as the southwestern entrance to the city of Yerevan. As travelers come from the airport to the city, they can see this unique tufa monument on the left side of the road. The monument consists of three large, parallel-arranged gables with triangular outlines and arches, all connected by a bronze sculpture of an eagle. The height of the monument is 15 meters.
The bronze eagle symbolizes the constructive spirit of Armenians, and it holds a straight wire, which is the primary tool of a builder, with its claws.
