Middle Bridge of Hin Gandzak

The Middle Bridge of Hin Gandzak is situated over the river Gandzak—240 metres down-stream from the Upper Bridge of the same town site—in the north of Gandzak Town, Northern Artsakh, a region that suffered deportation of its Armenian population in 1988 and has been annexed to Azerbaijan since then. It was investigated during the archaeological studies of Hin Gandzak between 1939 and 1940. Most presumably, a structure of the 12th to 13th centuries, it was originally constructed of hewn stone. Close to the remains of the right-bank pier of the bridge can be seen the tower erected for its defence. __11. Jafarzade, I. Historical and Archaeological Studies of Hin Gyanja.
