The Shamiram Chanel, built by the Urartian king Menua in the Van province of Western Armenia, also known as the Menua Chanel, was originally intended to provide the region with drinking water. Now this beautiful historical building has turned into a garbage dump.

    The Shamiram Channel with a length of 51 km, considered a miracle of water architecture in the world, gives life to the lands through which it passes, and irrigates a total of 5 thousand hectares of land. One of the most important historical values of Van is the Shamiram Channel, which has been preserved for about 3,000 years and has survived to the present day, but is now on the agenda due to pollution and disappointing conditions. Due to inattention, the channel is under threat of destruction.

    Western Armenia is against all these and similar phenomena that are aimed at destroying our historical heritage.
