Yekedeshik

Yekedeshik

Yekedeshik means ‘single entrance’, and the ingress in question is sealed with a metal door. The place is fascinating, with more than 40 visit able rooms, on two levels. There is an ongoing debate about the identity of the builders of the caves. Some scholars believe that they were constructed by early Christian communities. Others suggest that the complex might have been a Buddhist monastery. There are several smaller cave complexes nearby, including one known as Bashdeshik (‘Five Entrances’), but these places, many of which have not been systematically explored, are of more specialist interest.
