Vayots Dzor governor: Selim mountain pass was renamed

The governor of Vayots Dzor province in Armenia Edgar Ghazarian urged the public to call henceforth Selim mountain pass ‘Vardenyats mountain pass’. He particularly wrote on his Facebook page today:

“Dear citizens.

‘Selim’ name is often used in the press, electronic mass media, tourist guides and reference books when the matter concerns a mountain pass, a caravanserai, etc. After consulting with historians, it became clear that Selim is the name of a person, rather than a place. This foreign barbarian was only famous for his evil deeds and destruction he caused.

Our picturesque sites and historic monuments should not be linked to his name. I want to inform everyone that changes were officially made in the place names, with Selim mountain pass renamed Vardenyats mountain pass and the Selim caravanserai renamed Orbelian’s caravanserai”.
