With the support of Portugal-based Galust Gulbenkian Foundation and US-based World Monuments Fund, many experts, archaeologists, art historians, architects and photographers from Armenia, USA and Europe gathered around the Ani mobile application project. In the application prepared in Turkish, Armenian and English languages, the user is presented with information about Ani and its surroundings "History",
