The ancient Karahunj monument located in Syunik Province of Armenia and recorded in various catalogs and magazines as the oldest observatory in the world is on the verge of destruction.
The process of the monument’s demolition continues despite the resentment in the Armenian society. It should be noted separately that the demolition of the monument takes place with the direct and feasible support of the current government of Armenia, which has been lately attacking the historical and cultural heritage of Armenia.
Information about all these actions has been repeatedly published on the pages of various media resources, including this one. However, as already noted, the process of the demolition of the Karahunj monument continues.
This process has several causes. First of all, the destruction of the monument is the wish of the mediocre pseudo-scientists who are groundlessly asserting that Karahunj is not an ancient observatory but an ordinary burial site and thus must be viewed from a different archaeological perspective. Apparently, these pseudo-scholars at one time wrote several worthless pamphlets regarding “burial grounds”, for which they received their academic regalia, titles, and financial incentives.
It is clear that the titanic work of Paris Herouni, who proved the origin of Karahunj as the oldest observatory, is a bone in the throat of such pseudo-scientists, for whom attaching the undeserved regalia on their door signs or business cards costs more than the history of the country and the people which they are a part of and which they hate will all fibers of their souls.
I repeat, Karahunj is already registered in world catalogs and journals as the oldest observatory. But it is not recorded in UNESCO as there was no request from Armenia.
Secondly, these actions are a continuation and one of the important points in the process of falsifying the most ancient history of Armenia, in which the current government of Armenia again takes an active part.
Thirdly, any evidence of the most ancient identity of Armenians in the territory of the Armenian Highlands goes against the Kremlin-Turkish plan to destroy the Armenian ethnic group in Armenia.
Thus, Russia wants to justify its occupation and colonization of Armenia, at the same time proving its commitment and belonging to the territory of the Armenian Highlands by falsifying the ancient history of Armenia, a process commenced by scholars Diakonoff and Piotrovsky.
And Turkey, with the help of the same falsification, is trying to justify the Armenian Genocide in Historical Armenia, claiming that the Armenians are as much aliens to these lands as the Turks are. Allegedly, at one time, the Armenians exterminated the Urartians just like the Turks massacred the Armenians during the Armenian Genocide of 1915.
Moreover, lately, the Turks have been so arrogant that they have been trying to prove that they are autochthonous to the Armenian Highlands. That is why everything that proves or just reminds of the falsity of these theories is mercilessly destroyed, including those monuments that have been already registered in UNESCO.
A recent report from the News Network Archaeology portal telling about the attempts of the Turks to cover Portasar with concrete is a testimony to this.
In fact, the process of the destruction of antiquities in Armenia is a continuation of the process of the destruction of Armenian heritage in Turkey and seems to pursue the same goals.
I repeat, all this is happening with the support of the country’s ruling circles. It should also be noted that such actions are permanent in all areas of the cultural and historical heritage of Armenia.
To top it off, we publish photographs of the actions of the Turks in the territory of ancient Portasar and the actions of the “Armenians” in ancient Karahunj. So to say, find ten differences, if any. In my opinion, they act more sophisticatedly in Armenia.
