Mazi Bridge

Mazi Bridge used to stretch over the river Artinajoor, 0.5 kilometre south-west of Banants Village, Karhat (Dashkesan) District, Northern Artsakh—a region that suffered deportation of its Armenian population in 1988 and has been annexed to Azerbaijan since then. Most probably, a monument of the 12th to 13th centuries, it was built of undressed stone and mortar, and survived until its destruction in the late 19th century. Before the deportation of Banants Armenians (1988), its piers could still be seen on the elevated river banks facing a narrow gorge.

Span length: 10.15 metres; passage width: 3 metres.
