The restoration of Surb Astvatsatsin Church in Bnunis community, Syunik region which has been going on for three years, will be completed in 2021 on the initiative of the RA Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports.

Gayane Nazlukhanyan, an expert of the Department of Preservation of Historical and Cultural Monuments of the RA Ministry of Education and Science, mentioned in a conversation with “Armenpress“.

According to her, they plan restoring the Targmanchats’ Church of Aygeshat community, Armavir region, the refectory of Kobayravank, the church of Sanahin monastery, the roofs of Amenaprkich Church, the land system of the structures of Marmashen Monastery, St. Astvatsatsin Church of Goshavank and vestibule roofs in 2022.

Referring to St. Hripsime Church in the Horom community of Shirak region, Nazlukhanyan said that the restoration process of the monument was stopped in 2020, because church foundations of an earlier period were found during the demolition to repair the floor of the church hall. She informed that the restoration works of St. Astvatsatsin Church in Bnunis have not started this year because of unfavorable weather conditions.
