October 2004
by Antoine Terjanian

I was so surprised to find a brand new building in downtown Yeghegnadzor when I returned from Ottawa this October. It is a beautiful building

From Rind (pronounced rrind, as in ring) a small village some 20 kms from our place, off the Silk Road to Lake Sevan (now known as the “Lincy” road because Kirk Kerkorian’s Lincy Foundation has paid for its reconstruction).

Architecture inspired from Tamanian’s Yerevan and Venice’s Palazzo Docale.

I was told it was the new Yeghegnadzor University, which had been build by the Primate of the diocese for the Provinces of Vayots Dzor and Syunik, Abraham Srpazan.

There was nothing in that spot last December when I left, and the building was now in use for the school year. Although cranes were still there and construction was continuing. Judging by the length of time it was taking us to “renovate” our B&B / House, I was impressed by this building’s realization and was eager to meet Abraham Srpazan, brief him on our activities and offer him our collaboration and any services we could perform.
