Sardarapat

      The Sardarapat Memorial
      Another striking landmark of the Ararat Valley is the Sardarapat Memorial (25 kilometres from Echmiadzin).
      The entrance is flanked by huge winged oxen made of red tuff. A flight of steps leads to a square from which a 35-metre-high bell tower rises. The beautiful trellis structure with its nine bells can be seen from afar. The bells ring every year on the day of the historic victory. A lane of eagles, symbolizing the spirit of the fearless fightingmen, leads to a curved Wall of Victory (length — 55 metres, height — 7 metres) with scenes of the battle, and the figure of a woman with a child — a symbol of revival.
