8. The planting of the forests; war with Persia; the line of the noble house of the Bznuni family is cut off.

When peace had been established for a time in the land of Armenia, Xosrov (Khosrov), king of Armenia, issued orders that gifts should be given to all the brave men who for the sake of Greater Armenia had served him and risked their lives in so many confrontations on the field of battle. To his commander Vač‘he gave the mines of anjanak, Jrabašxik‘ and C‘luglux (Bull’s Head), together with all their territories, and to the other nobles too he gave great gifts.

The king ordered his commander to collect plenty of saplings from the country-side—to bring the wild oak of the forest and to plant it in the district of Ararat. And so they planted oak trees from the fortified royal castle, which they call Garni, as far as the plain Mecamawr up to the hill which is called by the name of Duin and stands on the North side of the great city of Artas̆at, and along the river below as far as the palace of Tikuni. He named it Tačar Mairi [Forest Palace]. To the south of the reed beds here they created another forest by filling the plain with a plantation of oak trees. They named it Xosrovakert, and built the royal palace there. They did not join the two forests together; instead they surrounded them with separate enclosures so as to leave a broad highway between them. The trees established themselves and grew; and the king ordered that every kind of wild animal and game should be collected to stock the enclosures and turn them into parks for field sports, for his royal pleasure. The commander Vač‘e immediately carried out the king’s instructions.
