Bridge of Ter (Terunts)

The bridge of Ter stretches across the river Kurak in Getashen Village—stripped of its Armenian population and occupied by Azerbaijan since May 1991—Shahumian District, Republic of Artsakh (RMK). It was erected either in the late 19th, or early 20th, century on the initiative of Village Head of Getashen Arstam Yepiskopossian with an amount of money accumulated on account of the fines paid by the local disobedient inhabitants. __11. Nor-Dar, 1887, No. 127, p. 3; Mshak, 1913, No. 123, p. 2 (the originals in Armenian).
