“Service for the Protection of Historical Environment and Cultural Museum Reservations” NCSO informed that the “Kotrats” Qaravanatun (“Broken” Caravanserai) monument (state index 8.56.16) located about 3.5 km northwest from village Harjis of the Region Syunik was built in 1319. About 10 meters northwest from the Caravanserai (Qaravanatun) is registered a guide stone of the 14th century (state index 18.104.22.168). There is also another guide stone (state index 5.56.14) of the 14th century which is located about 850 meters west from the Caravanserai on the old way of Goris-Nakhichevan. The third guide stone (state index8.56.15) located on the old way (road) of Goris-Nakhichevan is situated about 1km west from the Caravanserai (Qaravanatun).
On October 21 the Regional Service PHE of Syunik monument’s keeper Rudik Mkrtchyan pictured the three guide stones; there wasn’t made any changes and any transformations. In 2011 Hamlet Petrosyan’s presented photo is the guide stone (state index 22.214.171.124) located 10 meters northwest from the “Kotrats” Qaravanatun (“Broken” Caravanserai) which is in the photo (main photo in the publication) made on October 21.
It isn’t the first time that Hamlet Petrosyan distributed false information about the protection of monuments. His aim isn’t the “caring” attitude of the protection of monuments. On this way Hamlet Petrosyan attempted to attract the public attention, including his students and officials of the culture’s field.
“Service for the Protection of Historical Environment and Cultural Museum Reservations” NCSO replies him and similar fictions the last time.
