This side of town was called Krdet, after the river that flowed along the east side of town.

Visible here is the eastern edge of Upper Hadjin and a section of Middle Hadjin (lower left).

St. Hagop Monastery is in the distance at the foot of the mountain bearing the same name.

The small mosque with a lone minaret (bottom far left) had been built for the small Turkish population.

During the siege of 1909, a contingent of Armenians protected the mosque.
