In recent years, the area in front of Yerevan railway station became one of the most recognizable symbols of the city: the monument to David of Sassoun made by Yervand Kochar was far from its desirable appearance. At the initiative of Yerevan journal   repair and restoration works were conducted on the territory adjacent to the monument to David of Sassoun.

Renovated  David of Sassoun appeared to Yerevan residents in early September 2011, with completely repaired pool, with the sculpture in the center, new benches and waste bins are placed in the area, new lights, cleaned the stone pedestal, cleaned up the green area. It is especially worth mentioning that the copper bowl previously stolen by vandals was restored with the monument. Now a national monument to the epical hero of, established in 1959, acquired its original outlook, and the station square has become one of the coziest sights in the city. Yerevan Magazine would particularly like to thank those who  were instrumental in the materialization of the project - David Aghayan, Bagrat Alekyan, Varuzhan Artenyan, Ruben Harutyunyan, Armen Garslyan, Hayk Ignatyan, Emil Pirumov, Suren Sahakyan, Ashot Khachaturyants, Felix Khachatryan.
