Kirants: The circle of time and space (photos)

The village that roams between time and space without an idea how to break free from madmen.

From the fourth century until today, this is one of the few villages that was not depopulated, even during the Mongol invasions. Here, even the stones taken out from under the arable lands speak of the Armenianness of the region. Every second one is either sculptured or has polished edges, which in itself attests to that being an ancient settlement.

Today, the villagers are facing the threat of losing their houses built over the years. Old residents say that even during the Soviet period, Azerbaijan was not even close to the village bridge. However, today the prime minister says the border will pass through the bridge, which is beyond any reason.
