Pantheon of Komitas Park was founded in 1936, when a year after Komitas’s (Armenian great composer) death his body was brought from France to Yerevan and buried exactly at this park.
Komitas (Soghomon Soghomonyan) was born on the 26th of September in 1869 in Turkey. He was a composer, singer, music ethnologist, monastery mentor and teacher. Komitas is considered to be the founder of the modern Armenian classical music.
Later the territory was turned into a pantheon of cultural figures and famous Armenians. Here Martiros Saryan, Avetik Isahakyan, Stepan Zoryan and their wives Lusik Saryan (1893-1974), Sophia Isahakyan (1882-1966), Satenik Zoryan (1901-1975) are buried. Shushanik Kurghinyan’s grave is located not far from the park, in a secluded corner.
