Description

One site, seemingly dozens of names from Carahunj karahunj carahunge karahoundj karahundj to Zorats Karer and many more variants. The site is situated north of Sisian and is one of Armenia’s most important prehistoric sites going back millennia into the bronze age and possibly earlier. Being touted as Armenia’s ‘Stonehenge’ (on the site notice boards) is doing this wonderful monument(s) an injustice, because for me it was infinitely more interesting. Why the megaliths are here isn’t known, but many of the 200+ stones have holes through which have led to many theories. Whatever the reason for its existence, the standing stones, setting, size and the many tombs make this a fascinating and wonderful place to visit.
