Anahit is an Armenian fertility goddess. In Armenia, Anahit was a major god who ruled over fertility and birth.


  • She was formerly thought to be a battle goddess, but now she is the guardian of the country and its people, and most of her representations are made of gold. 
  • Doves and flowers were often given to her holy representations, since she is also a goddess of beauty and water.

  • Anahit has been likened to Artemis and Aphrodite throughout history.
