Abandoned Armenia: Karahunj

One of the most ancient megalithic constructions of the world Karahunj is located in Syunik province of Armenia, near the town of Sisian. Even with the tracks on a burnt plain there are a series of giant red-brown monoliths. The two-meter pointed blocks are drawn exactly from South to North, covering a fairly large area. In the center they form a correct circle.

Proved Karahunj – ancient Observatory, built by human civilization. It was built in VI Millennium BC steles In many drilled holes that correspond exactly to the location of the stars in the sky. Similar structures scientists discovered in many parts of Europe. The most famous of them is Stonehenge in England, erected in the II Millennium BC.

Perhaps the construction of the fence would avoid such a close neighbourhood of ancient history with modern animal husbandry.
