During the construction of the Beidag park in Malatya, fragments of a medieval Armenian structure were discovered. The remains appear to be stones of an Armenian church. Archaeological works are underway to find out which century the ruins date to. Preliminarily, they are dated back to the Middle Ages.
The deputy director of the Malatya Museum notes that the construction works of the park have been put on hold. Currently, archaeologists are working on the site.
“Now, it’s thought that the finds date back to the Middle Ages, and Armenian inscriptions were found in the park. That’s why it is thought that the stones are from a church,” the deputy director said.
