Ani-Kamakh Erzinka, Upper Armenia

Ani-Kamakh was one of the impregnable fortresses and pagan sanctuaries in the Daranaghyat province of ancient Armenia (now in Turkey).

According to the Epic Histories written by the 5th-century historian Pavstos Buzand , he accounts that King Shapur II the Great of Persia after having recaptured Armenia and occupying Ani-Kamakh, discovered there the treasures and tombs of the Armenian Arshakuni Kings.

He ordered his troops to exhume the royal remains and in doing so, destroyed the Arshakuni ancestral tombs that were at Ani-Kamakh.
