Thanks to its geographical position and mild climate, the Alashan settlement of the Martakert region of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic served as a sanitary during the Soviet era and later obtained the status of a military hospital during the post-war era.
From now on, Alashan will serve as a temporary settlement for 27 families who evacuated Talish when the war broke out in early April. Recovery efforts are underway. The existing villas, structures sand buildings and their infrastructures are being renovated to serve as temporary dwellings, as reported the Ministry of Urban Development of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, according to Hayern Aysor.
Alashan neighbors the Drmbon and Mehmana villages of Martakert region and is located in the zone adjacent to the Sarsang Reservoir, which is the main reservoir of Artsakh. Compared to Talish, it is safe and quite far from the border.
Alashan is a lowland territory. It has all the preconditions for agriculture, including farming, cattle-raising and beekeeping. Alashan also has rich water resources. Construction is being carried out at the expense of funds from the State Budget. The construction materials that citizens of the Republic of Armenia and the Armenian communities of the Russian Federation provided to Artsakh as charity are also being used during construction.
