Modern parallels to the Area 3 church at Tell Tuneinir , Syria


Melikiyah Barabeit Tell Sakra Diyarbakr Hah
The Area 3 church is similar in size to several village churches in Syria and Turkey. Such small churches are decorated with embroidered curtains, framed paintings and pictures, small wooden and metal crosses, etc. The actual walls and floor of these churches would appear as undecorated (like the Area 3 church) in terms of what would be preserved in an archaeological site.
