Garni is a temple complex in Kotayk, Armenia. The temple pictured was constructed either in the late 1st century AD or in the 2nd. It was most likely built by Tiridates I of Armenia and dedicated to the god Mihr. Its construction indicates that Armenia was declaring itself as a Roman province. In the foreground are khachtars, medieval memorial stelae characteristic of Christian art found in Armenia. by SaroGPS
