Pilgrimage Site In Shirak

Visit the pilgrimage site of TsakKar pilgrimage (literally “stone with a hole”), a natural stone monument that locals visit mainly on the Armenian holiday of Vardavar in July. Those who pass through the stone are cured from all illnesses and have their wishes come true or so the legend goes. On a mountain not far from TsakKar is the Seven Brothers’ shrine-chapel, which marks the grave of seven brothers who were martyred during a battle. The canyon containing these two sites is brimming with local traditions and beliefs. Many visitors install khachkars (cross-stones) or plant trees in the area and make a wish.
The tour provides an opportunity to think about the present and not forget about the past.
