Vartavar festival

Vartavar festival

Vartavar festival in July in Kharpert.

Formerly written as Ordivar or Ordevar (pronounced Vordivar or Vordevar), the festival of Vardavar is linked to the worship of the Sun God. The sprinkling of water or rosewater is a component episode in the festival and not its essence. The Armenian church identified the festival with the Transfiguration of Christ.
