Micro Art Museum
“Ter-Ghazaryans’ Micro Art” Museum demonstrates absolutely unique micro statues placed on the half of rice grain, in the eye of a sewing needle or on human hair. This masterpieces made by Eduard Ter-Ghazaryans (grandfather and grandson).
On the left side is, just imagine, a caravan of camels, made of precious stones, placed in the eye of a sewing needle.
Levon's "heaven-guided" maze
Levon Arakelyan’s or Master Levon’s “heaven-guided” underground maze is another unforgettable attraction in Yerevan. Why?
It demonstrates the power of man who without any drawings, using only hand tools, dug the absolutely stunning curve with numerous underground passages, spiral staircases, and rooms.
It is really worth seeing.
