The Origins of Khachkar

KhatchkarKhachkar (Kha - ch - kar) or Cross-Stone is the unique manifestation of Christian Armenian national art which in its Christian form and type has no other equivalent in the world.

It constitute an integral dimension of Armenian sculptural art; with their high artistic standards and strong national character, occupies a worthy position in the treasury of international art.

Khachkars are also an expression of the Christian faith and high aesthetics taste of the Armenian nation, nation that was first to officially adopt the Christian faith in the year 301 of Our Lord Saviour.

In the deep respect and commemoration of the Khachkar by the International community, a Khachkar was placed in the front entrance of the Main Hall of the United Nations in New York.
