Symphony of Stones

Garni Canyon canyon is attractive for the wonderful natural rocks, formed of regular hexagonal cylinders. These rocks start from the beginning up to the highest point of the canyon. The composition is called “Symphony of Stones” or “Basalt Organ”. The monument consists of huge paradoxically symmetric hexagon and pentagon basalt columns (nearly 50 meters high). These stones hanging against the gravity resemble an organ, which explains why it is also referred to as “Basalt Organ Pipes”.  The river of Azat flows through the gorge, thus peppering the mesmerizing beauty of stones with burble.
“Symphony of Stones” is registered in the list of natural monuments and, consequently, is protected by law. This is one of the must-see places of Armenia.
