If the tour to Jerusalim is a tour to the country where God has baptized and preach the doctrine, than taking pilgrimage to Armenia means to go to the country which first adopted God’s doctrine. Armenians are the first nation who understood and refused paganism with its traditions and in the basis of Christian religion created new culture and tried to rely on the principles of humanity. According to the legend, two of 12 apostils of Jesus Christ Tadevos and Bardughimeos have spread Christianity in Armenia. Our church is named apostolic church because of these apostils. However, just like in other countries Armenians also refused Christianity at first. King Trdat the Third adopted it as a state religion in 301. This event has interesting prehistory.

He also forbade giving him food and drinks, if you take pilgrimage to Armenia you will see the hole, where Grigor Lusavorich had been kept for 13 years.  Grigor Lusavorich would stay in that hole for a long time if King Trdat the Third hadn’t fallen sick and had pains. At that time Trdat’s sister saw that only arrested Grigor would be able to help his brother. King ordered to set free the prisoner and people got astonished seeing that Grigor who hadn’t eaten and drunk for a few days is not only alive, but also had a good look. Thinking that it was due to God and also that he treated the King without any medicine, Trdat decided to adopt Christianity as a state religion and all the pagan traditions were forbidden.
