The process of including Carahunge in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Updated: Sep 23, 2021

17.03.2020 In the protection of Carahunge, <<Carahunge Armenological center>> NGO cooperate with various non-governmental organizations and individuals, both in Armenia and abroad, in the USA, Germany, Poland, Russia, etc.

In particular, thanks to the efforts of our friends from the United States, months ago we contacted with the UNESCO office, and later with the international organization ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites) adjacent to UNESCO, whose activities are dedicated to the preservation and protection of cultural and historical sites.

We are in close cooperation with the ICOMOS Armenian office, the result of this is the list of sites submitted by ICOMOS to the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports, which includes also Carahunge. The list of 7 sites is proposed to be included in the preliminary list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.In the future, if the ministry applies for this list to UNESCO, the latter will be able to include only 2 objects annually from that list in its main list.

Depending on the development of the current situation, the visit of ICOMOS international experts to Armenia to assess the destructive excavations in Carahunge is also being considered.

Let us remind you that we demand the immediate proper restoration of the monument and closing the topic of excavations forever.

Thanks to Armine Palyan, and Building Better Future organization for supporting.

Thank you to all our supporters.
