There is also a pagan temple Garni, which was built in 70's years of the 1st century by the Armenian King Trdat the 1st. The temple was dedicated to pagan god named Mihr. The temple is surrounded by 24 columns which symbolize the hours of the day. The etymology of Garni is connected with Haykazyan Gegham patriarch's grandson Garnik.
