Kim and Khloe posed for a picture in front of the landmark, with Khloe explaining to Instagram followers: "The Mother Armenia statue symbolises peace through strength. It can remind viewers of some of the prominent female figures in Armenian history."

The statue sits in Victory Park overlooking Armenia's capital city of Yerevan.

This is Kim and Khloe's first visit to Armenia, although they both identify themselves as American-Armenian women and have always wanted to travel there.

Khloe even included a traditional Armenian dance during her wedding reception in 2009.

The girls travelled to Armenia alongside relatives including Kim's husband Kanye West and daughter North, one. Kourtney Kardashian is thought to have remained in LA.
