Piece of history: Church of Kish in Azerbaijan’s Sheki (13 photos)

The Church of Kish is an inactive 12th-13th century Caucasian Albanian church located in the village of Kish approximately 5 km north of Sheki, Azerbaijan.

The church has a special status among Christian Albanian monuments. It is valuable not only as an architectural monument but also because of its outstanding historical significance.

Inside the church there is a layer of ancient plaster, and there is a belief that if a coin stucks to this spot, a desired wish will come true. There is also an ancient burial both inside the church and outside in the yard. Locals say the people buried there were extremely tall and they were the attendants of the church.

Below are the photos of the Kish Church:
