Upper Bridge of Hin Gandzak

The bridge extends over the river Gandzak in the town site of Hin Gandzak, in the north of Gandzak Town (within 160 metres of an angular tower that forms the southern part of a fortification rising on the left side of the town), Northern Artsakh—a region that suffered deportation of its Armenian population in 1988 and has been annexed to Azerbaijan since then. It was studied during archaeological research conducted in Hin Gandzak from 1939 until 1940. Judging from the remnants of the left-bank pier of the bridge, it had a width of 4 metres. __11. Jafarzade, I. Historical and Archaeological Studies of Hin Gyanja.
