Park after Komitas and Pantheon (Armenian: Կոմիտասի անվան զբոսայգի և պանթեոն) is located in Yerevan's Shengavit District, on the right side of the main Arshakunyats Avenue. Many outstanding figures of Armenia's artistic world are buried here, including Komitas (1869-1935), the founder of Armenian national music, after whom it is named.
The Komitas Pantheon was entirely renovated in 2005 with a cost of AMD 96 million, allocated from the state budget. The works started on June 2005 and finished in October of the same year. New entrance gates were designed on both sides of the park. After the reconstruction process, the irrigation problem was also solved.
