The Legendary Battle of Avarayr, also known as Battle of Vartanantz was fought on May 26, 451 AD on the Avarayr Plain in Vaspurakan, between the Armenian Army under Saint Vartan (man in red) and Sassanid Persia. Although outnumbered and outmatched, the Armenians proved to be a difficult people to subdue. The Persians were eventually victorious on the battlefield, but the battle proved to be a major strategic victory for Armenians, as Avarayr paved way to the Nvarsak Treaty, which affirmed Armenia’s right to practice Christianity freely.
