Makun Bridge

Makun Bridge (span length: 5.15 metres; passage width: 3.50 metres) lies over a tributary flowing through Metz Taghk Village towards the river Ishkhanaget, at the southern extremity of the same village (Hadrut District, Republic of Artsakh (RMK)). According to its four-line construction inscription, carved in Armenian (see it in the Armenian text) on a finely-finished piece of stone (33 x 30 x 13 centimetres)—once set in the facade of the bridge looking downstream, but at present fallen off its original place—it dates back to 1890.

Transl.: In memory of Ghazar Harutiun Bejaniants, 1890.
