Response to Surmeli Chapala on border

 

It is not a church, but part of the fortifications. The square tower, which might have acted as a sort of citadel, can be seen from the main road, but the whole site is within a military zone and there is a watchtower actually beside the site. There was a turbe located at the edge of the cliff on the north side, midway between the tower and the north end of the western walls, but it seems to have collapsed in recent years, perhaps after the 1988 earthquake.
