    Brief synopsis

    This ancient and sacred mountain (see Holly Bible) dominates over the capital of Armenia. Its snow tops are hanging over the city and its inhabitants like a dream, at a stone's throw distance, but still unattainable. (Ararat is in a Turkish territory).
    The presence and influence of the mountain for and on to the existence of some people is so great, that it was transferred to a moral measure that was defined by each of them by themselves. Sometimes it is like this: "These people are not worthy of this mountain".
    The statement that for most people the mountain is only tremendous scenery, must be checked up.
    Ararat is dangerous: there are Turkish rockets based on the mountainside and every minute they can shoot the millions of people.
