Picture of the day
Templo de Garni, Armenia, 2016-10-02, DD 03.jpg

The Temple of Garni (lit. "pagan temple of Garni") is a classical Hellenistic temple in Garni, Armenia. It is perhaps the best-known structure and symbol of pre-Christian Armenia and was probably built by king Tiridates I in the first century AD as a temple to the sun god Mihr. According to some scholars it was not a temple but a tomb and thus survived the universal destruction of pagan structures. It collapsed in a 1679 earthquake and reconstructed between 1969 and 1975.

The image was taken by the Expedition 28 crew. On July 20, the shuttle undocked from the station for the final time and began preparations to return home, thus concluding NASA’s 30-year space shuttle program.
