The Miracle of Vorotan Canyon - Devil’s Bridge (IV – II mil. BC) is situated in the Canyon of Vorotan River, and stretches for nearly 30 meters length. It is located in the deepest part of the gorge, in the depth of 700-800 meters. One of the picturesque monuments of nature – the Devil’s Bridge is situated here in this deep canyon, surrounded with many mountainous springs the waters of which had painted the rocks of the canyon with pink, yellow and green colors.
This wonderful structure is natural bridge formed from travertines. During many centuries huge masses of limestone have been gathering to form this powerful stone arch. The stalactites made by the mineral water springs hang from the edges of this stone arch, and there are beautiful falls rushing down from the rock caves under the natural bridge. The mineral springs are just under the bridge. They are poured into Vorotan River to make it more abundant. At the first sight it seems that the small and thin river flows under the bridge but, instead, we see a deeper river flowing from the bridge. Perhaps, this is the reason why people named the natural bridge as “Devil’s Bridge”. The hot mineral waters of healthy traits made ponds under the bridge. It is known that in the ancient times Armenian wealthy people used to visit this wonderful cave in summer months to have a bath in the healthy waters of the basins.
