In Van ,was the largest cemetery in Western Armenia, made of Towering Khachkars for grave stones, but after 1915, the Turks Destroyed them all, and now its called the larges Islamic cemetery in Turkey.
To see the cemeteries you would have to first register hare, witch is ware I saw tho old black and white pictures.
Hope this helps.
