Jokhtak Bridge

Jokhtak Bridge stretches over the Parisos—the left tributary of the river Shamkor—in the territory of a village site of the same name, at an altitude of 1,150 metres above sea level: “…called Bayram Ali or Ghosha Kyopri (two bridges), apparently after the two bridges one of which is now in ruins—only a single part of it is still preserved…” __11. Smbat M. Antiquities in the Neighbourhood of Getabek. In: Nor-Dar, 1893, No. 36, p. 2 (the original in Armenian). Taking into account the fact that the adjacent ancient sites and monuments (Parisos Monastery, Parisos Castle and the churches of the town site of Parisos) mostly date from the 9th to the 11th centuries, we may trace this bridge back to the same period.
