The historical fortress, built presumably in the second century in the Viransehir province of Urfa in Western Armenia, is under threat of extinction. Although it was decided to be on a protected area for the castle and its surroundings, there are no warning signs about this on the territory. Restoration works are not carried out in the castle and its surroundings, the walls are in danger of collapse. Despite all the destruction, the castle retains its luxury. There are many caves, rock tombs and reservoirs around the castle, as well as ancient settlements. Some of the approximately 300 large and small caves have been closed with doors and are being used as a barn. Inside the main entrance there is a large cave, which, like many historical buildings, turned out to be the target of treasure hunters. Only the columns in the upper part of the cave have been preserved, which are partially destroyed.
