Karahunj also called as Zorats Karer, or Karahunj or Carahunge (Քարահունջ, Քարահունճ կամ Զորաց քարեր) is an ancient archaeological site near the city of Sisian, Syunik province, Armenia.

Although there are various studies about the site, the latest show that it was also used as astronomical observatory.

A set of more than 200 erected stones out of which about 85 do have holes on them, made the ancient observatory, which is  3500 years older than England’s Stonehenge and 3000 years older than the Egyptian pyramids.

What better way to photography an observatory than to view the biggest star, the sun, through it.

I especially liked the Armenia Tricolor (Red – Blue – Orange) like colors that appeared on the lens flare.
