The basis for the establishment of the institute was a collection of manuscripts that for centuries were collected and stored in Etchmiadzin, called Armenian Vatican. Later the collection was transferred to Yerevan. All the rooms of the building were carved into the rock, which would protect them in the event of nuclear war. You should know that the culture of writing and the Armenian alphabet has always been so strong that even the Soviet Union could not introduce Russian alphabet, as it was the case in other republics. Collections of Matenadaran is not only simple documents. The manuscripts are richly decorated and emerged in all parts of the world, wherever the Armenians lived.
