The Matenadaran Institute was founded in 1920 on the basis of manuscripts stored in the Echmiadzin monastery. The elder scrolls belong to the V century, they were created by Mesrop Mashtots, founder of the Armenian alphabet. In Soviet times, the manuscript was transported to Yerevan (by that time they already had more than 4 thousand), and in 1959 he built a special building, designed in the style of Armenian architecture of XII-XIII centuries. Before the building there is a statue of Mashtots, and in front of the facade sculptures of different thinkers. In addition to Armenian manuscripts, there are other ancient writings.
