Sardarapat is the architectural and sculptural complex located 54 km from Yerevan. It was established in 1968 in commemoration of the victory of Armenians over Turkish aggressors in 1918.

In 1918 the Turkish army intruded Ararat valley, occupied the village of Sardarapat and approached Yerevan . On May 22nd, 1918 the crucial battle took place there and brought victory to Armenian people. In the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of that historical battle in May, 1968 this architectural complex was opened.

The complex is built from red tuff. Especially original is the beautiful 35-m belfry-tomb with massive sculptural winged bulls on both sides. The idea of this composition is as follows: the belfry was erected on the place of the graves of the fallen fighters, and the holy bulls symbolize the surviving soldiers of Sardarapat guarding the tomb.

 

Behind the memorial wall the building of the Ethnographic Museum is located. The museum has the big collection of objects from various historical periods and regions of Armenia.
