Sp. Stepanos of Hishet - The Armenian church of Sp. Stepanos in the Hishet section of Shadakh dates to between the 10th and 11th centuries. A restoration dates to the 17th century. At one time, the church was surrounded by a cemetery, but today there is no evidence of the cemetery. A military base has surrounded the church for years. While the inside of the church had been inaccessible, the outside could be viewed from outside the security fence. In April 2014, we were allowed in to take photographs of the sanctuary. While the cemetery no longer exists, the condition of the church has remained unchanged.
