Vank Church Vank Church is situated on a steep slope between two hills, about three kilometers away from the village, atop a high hill. It was constructed at least 300 years ago by the Armenian community that once inhabited the region, with its entrance façade made of smooth cut stone. The most remarkable feature of this church is its door, which has an arched frame with regularly cut white stones at the top and bottom. The door stones are engraved with numerous crosses of varying shapes and sizes. The window is carved into a niche at the top, and two slots for candles are situated on either side of it. Unfortunately, in the 1970s, thieves stole the two-winged door which had high artistic value, inscriptions, and embossed human-animal figures made of coconut walnut. The iron jamb of the door has been preserved in the Elazig Museum. The roof is flat-shaped and covered with earth, and two gargoyle lions with open mouths are used to drain rainwater from the roof. The building's interior is divided into two distinct parts. The first part comprises a spacious, high-ceilinged hall, while the second part is narrower and features a round barrel vault. The latter area is decorated with black and white tiles arranged at right angles to each other. Over time, erosion has exposed some of the foundation stones through the gaps in the tiles, affirming its square shape. The apse is situated 90 centimeters above the ground and can be accessed via a stone step on the left. Symmetrical niches adorn both sides of the apse, while a flat brick table rests on a half-meter column at its center. Some stones on the southwest and west walls of the church bear traces of writing, suggesting the existence of another building or part of the church that was visible when the area was littered with piles of stones. Engraved birds, a wheat-cross in a circle, and a stylized wheat ear are among the historical stones from the old church that were used in constructing a new house next to the church. A large relief cross is visible on one of the tombstones, which is believed to have been brought over from an older section of land located nearby.
