In the Highlands of West Asia lies the landlocked country of Armenia. It is amongst the earliest Christian civilisations. Perhaps one of the most stunning natural monuments in Armenia is the Symphony of the Stones. It can be found in the province of Kotayk. The natural formation of volcanic rock that appear to be defying gravity in massive symmetric hexagon and pentagon columns. This formation is also called ‘Basalt Organ Pipes’. These photographs are but a mere glimpse of this truly ancient Christian land.
