Mount Ararat, ARMENIA

Mount Ararat, the national symbol of Armenia is an emblem of both pride and frustration for the Armenian people. It plays a major part in the national history of Armenia, but now lies just outside its borders in Turkey. The Book of Genesis identifies this mountain range as the resting place of Noah's Ark after the Great Flood. Armenians say that Noah named their capital when the Ark rested between its two peaks, looking forth at the receding waters of the Flood he saw the first land emerge and exclaimed, "Yerivan!" which means, in Armenian, "It is seen!".
