Armenian alphabet Monument is unique not only in Armenia, but also in the world! The founder of the letters is Mesrop Mashtoc, who invented flexible Armenian letters in 405.
Definitely it's worth to visit this beautiful place!

To celebrate 1,600 years of Armenian alphabet, created by Mesrop Mashtots, the 39 letters are scattered across the rocky plain by the side of the road. Stop for 10 minutes and take some photos.
Note : there's a dozen large dogs roaming the site. Not sure how safe they are.

This is a small place. It has the Armenian letters in stone, you basically take pictures with the letters and that is it.
Its a cool place to see on your way to another location, but do not just go here alone!

the park has the armenian alphabet in human size. Most people pose with the 1st letter of their name. Of course you need to know what the letter looks like in Armenian. You can always ask the tour guide or to another Armenian.
In the back there are some figures of teh person who invented the alphabet (Mesrob Mashdots), the king during who's reign the alphabet was invented, the head of the armenian church during that period... and few others.
It should be a quick 10-15 minute stop.

We enjoyed it.

To get there we caught a Minibus (Marshutka) from the Kilikia (Central) Bus termianl that was headed for Spitak and asked the driver to drop us off here.

There are no set pathways so with melting snow it was muddy so don't wear your Sunday best.

To get back we hitched, caught trolley buses and a Metro (won't bore you with the details as they may be completely irrelevant to you).

Otherwise wait for a Marshutka headed for Yerevan and jump on. Easy Peasy.

There is also other religious monuments that make you the Memorial Park area.

Worth it if you have the time.

You really don’t need more than 5 minutes at this monument. There’s nothing particularly interesting about it, except that it’s the only 1 of its kind in the world, apparently. Take some photos and keep it moving. The main reason to go is to say that you’ve been.

The Armenian Alphabet park is amazing, as big as human size. It has a great view of snow mountain of mount Aragat. Great place to bring the kids.

It was a freezing cold day and then the snow started. The ground around the letters was like a quagmire so we were slipping all over the place. Seen it but wouldn't rush back!

Armenians are very font of their alphabet, and this park containing all 39 letters in large forms celebrated its existence for 1600 years. There is no explanation or transcription, so unless you are with an Armenian, you probably will not find the letter you are looking for. At the back there are also some statues, but even without name tag, so you get to guess who they are. So, worth a stop if you are passing by, especially if an Armenian can tell you which letter your name starts with.

Large letters of the Armenian alphabet are displayed in a haphazard fashion in a park still to be developed. Not worth a special trip but worth stopping for 10 minutes if you are going past.
