Haghpat Monastery, Armenia project

The Haghpat Monastery 3D Heritage Project is the first site selected for 3D documentation as part of the on-going DHHC's Armenian Heritage and Social Memory Program. Haghpat Monastery is located in northern Armenia's Lori Province, and is a rural town sitting above the valley that Alaverdi. This World Heritage site is imperiled due to its proximity to areas of conflict, and due to natural processes relating to structural decay and integrity loss. Additionally, air pollutants and cultural processes that accelerate structural and carved iconography surface loss are occurring at the site. Stone monuments at the site are susceptible to loss, reuse, and movement. Additionally, the ornate carved cross-stone monuments called Khachkars that are numerous at Haghpat, have been declared by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as an intangible cultural heritage that is in need of urgent safeguarding.

We would like to thank the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Catholicosate of All Armenians for their support and participation in this project.
