Monument to 50 years of Soviet Armenia

 The 50-meter obelisk, which is 65 meters, symbolizes the 50th anniversary. It ends with three slightly pointed arches. Such an end of the monument was used in the Urartian period and used to symbolize the royal crown.

 A stylized pine tree (15m) is perceived as a wheat spike, which had historical and cultural significance in the past and symbolized the Tree of Life.

Abandonded construction works between Soviet Armenia and Cascade complex

I first visited this place back in Summer of 2014, the place looked more or less the same. Which leads to think it could take anothed decade (or two) bedore making looks prettier.
