“I should like to see any power of
the world destroy this race, this
small tribe of unimportant
people, whose wars have all been
fought and lost, whose structures
have crumbled, literature is
unread, music is unheard, and
prayers are no more answered.
Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See
if you can do it. Send them into
the desert without bread or
water. Burn their homes and
churches. Then see if they will not
laugh, sing and pray again. For
when two of them meet
anywhere in the world, see if they
will not create a New Armenia.”
“If I were to be asked where on the planet Earth one can see the
most incredible wonders, I would first of all say – Armenia…”,
“There is no other land in the world so full of wonders as the land
But whatever may have been their destiny, and it has been bitter,
whatever it may be in future, their country must ever be one of the
most interesting in the world“.
George Gordon Byron
Any kind of virtue is compared with
Mother for Armenians. Mother is the
supporting column in the family, Mother
bears the soldiers of the Motherland,
Mother is the source of purity, honesty,
love and respect.
The poem by famous poet Hovhannes
Shiraz speaks for itself. He speaks for all
My mother is our aspirations indeed,
She is our home chapel indeed.
My mother is our cradle
Our family backbone is my mother.
My mother is like a father as well as a
She is our sole mistress.
My mother is the homeless of our home
Our eagle nest is our mother.
Our family maid is my mother,
As well as the queen of our family.
My mother is insoluble,
Yet she is our remedy and the solution.
My mother is our family spring
And also our thirsty sister.
My mother is our home sleepless person,
And yet she is our sweet sleep indeed.
My mother is our bread
Our family Goddess is my mother indeed.

A hole place which is called MAYRASAR
got its birth of a toast around
traditional Armenian table. A toast for
mothers by Edward Khlghatyan was not
just something said and forgotten. The
idea of rename the highest peak in
Vanadzor by Mayrasar had to become a
reality. And that reality was born in
2008. The mountain which is 2707
meters high from above the sea level is
now and then a holy place for millions
of Armenians. Mother’s Statue which is
a collective figure prays for her children
all over the world and her holy soul
hovers high in the sky close to GOD.
Even if there is the second flood the
Mother’s Statue will be saved and will
stay as proud as it stays.

( CROSS STONE)
A khachkar, also known as Armenian
cross-stones (Armenian: խաչքար,
pronounced [χɑtʃʰˈkʰɑɾ], խաչ xačʿ
"cross" + քար kʿar stone") is a
carved, memorial stele bearing a cross,
and often with additional motifs such
as rosettes, interlaces, and botanical
motifs. Khachkars are characteristic of
Medieval Christian Armenian art.
Since 2010, khachkars, their
symbolism and craftsmanship are
inscribed in the UNESCO list of
Intangible Cultural Heritage.
The most common khachkar feature is
a cross surmounting a rosette or a
solar disc. The remainder of the stone
face is typically filled with elaborate
patterns of leaves, grapes,
pomegranates, and bands of interlace.
Occasionally a khachkar is surmounted
by a cornice sometimes containing
biblical or saintly figures.
