Vardavar is a pagan festival, coming from the time when Armenians used to worship different Gods. It was the celebration of Astghik, who was the Goddess of water, love, beauty and fertility. People offered roses to Astghik and poured water over each other. This pagan tradition has survived and is still celebrated in the streets of Armenia. With no age restriction, have fun watering everyone around you!
