Representatives of U.S. Smithsonian Institution visited Datev Monastery and got acquainted with Datev Revival program.

According to statement disseminated by IdeA Foundation, U.S. Smithsonian Institution Representatives’ visit took place within USAID’s My Armenia cultural tourism development project.

IDeA Tourism Projects Manager Armine Israelian said, that Tatev’s region has serious opportunities to develop cultural tourism.

Abbot Michael Vartabet Gevorgian fulfilled blessing service for the newly married on February 14 in Tatev Ministry.

Diarendaraj (Drndez) has been celebrated in a special way in Datev for the second year, with the initiative of IdeA’s Datev Revival program. A concert was held for the newlyweds and guests as well as a reception, a photoshot opportunity with national costumes.

“These events contribute to the unity around the Church, the restoration of our old traditions. We are filled with hope, that the regional community young couples’ united visit to the Church at Diarndaraj celebration will become a tradition”, said Michael Vartabet Gevorgian.

“We have organized this celebration for the second year and we aim to make it a tradition.  Events that have national cultural elements are interesting for the tourists as well and we hope that it will become a unique celebration in coming years and will boost the tourism flow to this region during not so high tourist season”, noticed Datev Revival Project Manager Hayk Tutunjian.
