Mor Mihael Church

Syriac records indicate that this Syriac Orthodox church dates no earlier than the late 5th century. The bell tower stands on a 10th-century bastion, while the tombs in the vaulted crypt date from the 2nd century. While the underground chamber is pre- Christian, the church itself is thought to have been built in 495.
