Dorinda Bowman photographs this view of Hadjin from her tent
Vilayet of Adana - Hadjin
Dorinda Bowman photographs this view of Hadjin from her tent in a vineyard high above the city extending south (R) and east (L) down the mountain.

To the south is the famous outcropping at the end of which sits Sourp Asdavadzazin Church. Across from the church is a white building, which is the new missionary home (and the former boys' vineyard).

The Girls' Home in Upper Hadjin is the second white building as the city slopes eastward (L). At this point in time, the Boys' Home had been vacated.
