The delegation of Western Armenia, continuing its mission, also held meetings in Mush with Armenian residents who were able to preserve their Armenian identity. It is worth remembering that in the history of the Armenian people, the people of Sasun and Mush especially distinguished themselves with their courage and patriotism. Being in Mush, it is a great mission for every Armenian to visit the monastery of St. Karapet, which was also done by our delegates. Before reaching the ruins of the monastery, the delegates stopped at the famous Sulukh Bridge built on the Aratsani river, which is located on the Mush-Khnus road. This magnificent bridge was built in 867 by an Armenian. The bridge has a length of 190 meters and is built on 12 arches.
Then, the members of the delegation went to the monastery of St. Karapet, which is now located on the territory of the village of Chengilli. On the site of the monastery of St. Karapet, there was previously a mehian, which was turned into a monastery during the adoption of Christianity in the IV century. The monastery of St. Karapet in Western Armenia was considered the largest and most cherished shrine. It was not only the most famous monastery in the world Taron but also the greatest monastery known to all Armenians after St. Etchmiadzin. It is impossible to imagine everything that our delegates were able to record without excitement: only a few ruins remain of the once majestic monastery structure, and the internal structure of the church has been turned into a warehouse. Armenian khachkars, formerly belonging to the monastery complex, were clearly visible on the walls of nearby houses.
