Djulfa khachkar in EtchmiadzinThe Djulfa Virtual Memorial and Museum (DVMM) was established in December of 2007 to document the deliberate destruction of the world’s largest Armenian cemetery - located in Djulfa (Jugha) - and the entire ancient Armenian cultural heritage in the region of Nakhichevan, Republic of Azerbaijan.
The photo is from a surviving Djulfa khachkar in St. Etchmiadzin Cathedral Complex, Armenia’s Holy See. This is one of five Djulfa khachkars transferred from the original cemetery in Nakhichevan before the 1990s.

Virtual tour of the city of Ani
Posted By: Moderator

"What is Ani? There are, of course, things we cannot describe however hard we try" wrote Konstantin Paustovsky after visiting Ani in in 1923.

A thousand years ago Ani was the capital of the Armenian kingdom. Ani had a population of at least 100,000 and its wealth and renown was such that it was known as the "City of 1001 Churches".

Ani is now a ghost city, uninhabited for over three centuries and marooned inside a Turkish military zone on Turkey's border with modern Armenia.

Ani's recent history has been one of continuous and always increasing destruction. Neglect, earthquakes, cultural cleansing, vandalism, quarrying, amateurish restorations and excavations - all these and more have taken a heavy toll on Ani's monuments. Yet still Ani survives.

Enter Virtual Ani tour to explore the city.
