Photographer's Note

2 photos today. The main one shows Garni Temple, the second (workshop) version shows Garni Gorge located behind the temple. Unfortunately it's not possible to get high enough to include both in one frame. 13mm. focal length, I corrected the perspective distortion.

From Armeniapedia:
It was built in the first century A.D. by the Armenian King Tiridates with the money he received after visiting Emperor Nero in Rome. The temple was destroyed in 1679 in an earthquake, but was reconstructed in Soviet times. (You can recognize the new stones by their lack of carving, which allows you to appreciate the originals.)
