Goddess Astghik. In Armenian mythology, Astghik (“little star”) was the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Water and the beloved of the God Vahagn (the God of Thunder, Lightning and War). According to the Armenian myths, Astghik, an extraordinary beauty, bathed every night in the Euphrates River. To admire the naked goddess, the young men lit big fires on Mount Daghonats of Taron region. Protecting herself from the eyes of others, every night Astghik covered the entire Taron Valley with fog.
