Mural by Grigor Khanjyan

Located in Khanjyan Gallery is the monumental mural executed by the well-known Armenian painter Grigor Khanjyan (1926–2000). Commissioned for the original Soviet monument but left unfinished at the time of Khanjyan’s death, the three primary scenes of the mural illustrate important events in Armenia’s history: The Creation of the Armenian Alphabet (1992-1994); The Battle of Vardanank in AD 451 (1995-1998); and The Rebirth of Armenia (1998-2000). Khanjyan Gallery was completely renovated in 2009, and its austere, unadorned interior embodies the reverence many Armenians feel toward one of their country’s artistic treasures.
