  • Noah's Village

  • We are not an amusement park.
  • We do not have fanciful rides to draw adrenaline-driven travelers.
  • We simply present you with facts.
  • Our forefathers told us that Noah took his family and pairs of animals on board the Ark to survive the world devastating Great Flood. The Ark drifted and finally landed on Mount Ararat. As the water receded and Noah departed the Ark, he built a village, the old Ahora Village on Mount Ararat.
  • The original Ahora Village was demolished in an earthquake in 1840.
  • Today, we are building Noah's Village in the foothills of the mountain, to pay tributes to our ancestors.
