BEŞKİLİSE (FIVE CHURCHES)

200 DSC04545Midway between the village of Dağpınar and the small town of Digor on the road south from Kars to Iğdır, the remains of a cluster of old Armenian churches on the lip of a gorge should make a stunning sight.

Unfortunately, to see them safely you need to be visiting in company and wearing good walking boots. Taxi drivers from Digor will happily deposit you at the rim of the isolated gorge but there’s no proper path to follow and a couple of years ago the new mayor slipped and broke his leg while attempting to visit. You have been warned.

In Digor itself the old church has been stripped to its very last facing stone and makes a sorry sight.

Transport info

Digor dolmuşes leave from the centre of Kars. If they’re not full minibuses to Igdır will also take Digor passengers – a servis bus ferries them from Kars Eski Garaj to the main otogar.
