Jewish Cemetery

The cemetery belongs to the Jewish community of Yeghegis in the 13th -14th centuries. The records contain lexics used in traditional Jewish burials, biblical poems, ethnically religious materials and expressions from Talmud. Some of the names of the deceased were widely spread among the Jews living in Iran, indicating that the Jewish community living in the Yeghegis village probably had an Iranian origin.
