On October 5, an opening ceremony of a khachkar in KhorVirap Monastery Complex was held. The idea to place a khachkar in KhorVirap was Bishop ArtakTigranyan’s, while the benevolence task was assumed by HrachPoghosyan.
The master of kahchkar, Varazdat Hambardzumyan was also present.
Around 10.000 khachkars were destroyed in Jugha, and the master can exactly replicate them. This khachkar is from the same series.
Almost 30 khachkars of Jugha have already been replicated, from which 3 are in Geghard, another 3 – in the yard of Etchmiadzin Seminary, 8 – in the nearabouts of St. Hovhannes Church, some of them got as far as Singapore and Australia.
