Memorial complex Tsitsernakaberd

The Memorial Complex of Tsitsernakaberd erected in Yerevan in 1967 commemorates the 1.5 million of Armenians died during the First Genocide of the 20th century committed by the Turkish government. The Memorial became the place of pilgrimage and an indivisible part of the architecture of Yerevan. The complex occupies the area of 4500 sq meters and consists of three main elements: the Memorial Wall, the Sanctuary of Eternity (Memorial Hall and Eternal Flame) and the Memorial Column “Reborn Armenia”.
In 1995, in the event of the 80th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide the Museum-Institute of the Armenian Genocide was built near the Memorial Complex (architectures S. Kalashyan, L. Mkrtchyan, A. Tarkhanyan, sculptor F. Arakelyan). Today the Museum-Institute is a science and research centre adjunct to the RA National Academy of Sciences.
