Century of Foundation: IV Region: Syunik Location: Zangezour Perched 3 kilometers above sea-level on a mountainous plateau in the mesmerizing region of Syunik there are the remnants of an ancient fortress with enormous ramparts. More than 2000 ancient rock engravings (petroglyphs) at Ughtasar comprise an outdoor exhibition that favorably rivals its peers located in Karelia, the Urals, France, Denmark, America and the Sahara, especially in terms of clarity and precision with which they portray culture and customs of the Stone Age. The carvings represent various sacred rituals, hunting scenes, folk and religious dances and other obvious traces of Paleolithic influence. Although the precise age of the carvings is unknown, it is generally accepted that the petroglyphs of Ughtasar date as far back as 7,000 years.
