Albanian temples

There are two temples in the highest point of north–east side of Keshikchigala, in 950 m height above sea level, looking towards the south and constructed from the local stone materials. The buildings locating at 1500 m distance from each other are the Christian temples of Caucasian Albanian period.  The loophole–shaped windows on both the front and side parts of the temple partially lightens interior of the building. These temples have resemblance according to their construction and architectural style with the temples built during the period of Caucasian Albania. There are many cave–type cells, chapels for religious ceremonies, water wells, reservoirs and food warehouses in the steep rocks where temples and Keshikchigala are built.
