Arc of Triumph in Palmyra, Syria, to be reconstructed

Damascus, Nov 6 (Prensa Latina) The Arch of Triumph in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra will be rebuilt based on a three-dimensional model designed by Russian specialists, Russian Ambassador to Syria Alexander Yefimov announced.

Important steps were taken to make the restoration of the more-than-two-thousand-year-old monument a reality in cooperation with the Syrian Department of Antiquities and Museums, Russian archaeologists and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), said the diplomat, who was quoted by local media.

He recognized that there are serious difficulties as it is a hard process requiring careful preparation and a high-quality and precise implementation at all stages.

Last April, archaeologists from Russia began the study phase to restore the Arc, the most important monument in Palmyra, and acknowledged that the condition of the building is much worse than expected.

Palmyra, 200 kilometers northeast of Damascus, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980 due to its valuable monuments and ruins dating back to Roman times.
