Restoration of old glkhatun

in the Tsaghkunk community of the Gegharkunik region

Within the framework of programs for the development of the Tsaghkunk district of the Gegharkunik region, the DAR Foundation supported the restoration of the village of Glhatun and the improvement of the adjacent territories.
Dating back to the 19th century, Glhatun was built in the hazarashen style – a wooden building with an earthen roof. The miraculously preserved giant pillars were fortified, cleared of centuries-old dust, and as a result of excavations, three tandoors were discovered at this place, in one of which pottery dating back to the 12th century was found. Today, Glhatun has been completely regenerated. Everyday rural women bake lavash here and even display the process of making traditional lavash to tourists visiting Tsaghkunk.
