The Oshakan Village of Armenia: The Resting Place of Mesrop Mashtots

Oshakan is a small village in Armenia and the burial place of the Armenian saint, Mesrop Mashtots, who is known for inventing (or, according to some sources, reintroducing) the Armenian alphabet, which is what the Armenian language continues to be written in today.

Armenia is one of the oldest nations in the world. There is no place in Armenia which does not have hundreds or thousands of years of history attached to it.
Whether it be the birthplace of a famous Armenian, a historical battlefield, or an ancient church, there is no part of Armenia that does not have the word ‘history’ written all over it.
