Ayayorgi Church (Hagios Georgios) / Aram Evliyası

Ayayorgi Church (Hagios Georgios) / Aram Evliyası

Adjacent to southeastern wall of the castle and entirely built with stone, the former name of the structure with rectangular plan is Aya Yorgi Church. There is a mihrab on east of the structure, which its top is domed. It is interesting by reflecting three periods of the castle as use of work. At first, a church was built in Byzantine period on a square plan tower with 6 m width belonging to Hellenistic period. In Seljuk time, church was kept during the construction of old walls and used as a small mosque. The structure carries features of 11th and 12th century in terms of style.
