So the hideous cladding on the outside walls is still there?

Response to Gandzasar+Parpi

 

My source for the old photos was just a Soviet-period leaflet on the monastery - it is dated 1991 but is probably a reprint. Its author is A. L. Jacobson who also wrote a 1960 book on Gandzazar so the photos may be from that earlier period. Volume 17, "Gandzazar", of the "Documents on Armenian Architecture" series of books is probably going to be the best source for pictures. There is a photo of the gavit door in a 1985 book by S. Mkrtchyan about the architectural monuments of Nagorno Karabakh - and the inscription is gone in that photo.
