21/10/2015 - عدد القراءات : 955

DGAM carries on restoration works, some to resolve the damages caused during the conflict, and some according to our regular yearly restoration plans to the historical monuments and archaeological sites.

Works to resolve damages during the conflict:

Rural Homs:

Most significant works are in the Crac des Chevaliers.  Cleaning the main façades of the previously-sabotaged Hall of Knights, structural consolidation of the neighboring arches, expulsion of unimportant fragments in the colonnades, and proper re-alignment and reuse of the important pieces of stones, were already carried out.
