The Armenian Association of Architects Restoring Historical Monuments
has complained to Presidents of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh Serzh
Sargsyan and Bako Sahakyan of the continued cladding of the stonewall
around Gandzasar Monastery with marble slabs.

In their letter to the Presidents the architects demand that the
activities be stopped right away.

"Stopped in 2011, following the protests of experts, the project has
now been started again, which means that certain government officials
do not care for the opinion of experts," the architects say.

Located in the village of Vank, Nagorno-Karabakh, Gandzasar was the
residence and sepulture of the Hasan-Jalalyan family, the rulers of
the Princedom of Khachen. In XIV it was turned into the residence of
the Catholicos of Aghvanq. An inscription inside the monastery says
that it was built in 1216-1238.
