Dashtadem (Armenie: Դաշտադեմ; umwhile, Nerkin Talin (Note: The majority o residents in neebourin Talin still refer tae Dashtadem as Nerkin Talin); Roushifee'd as Nizhniy Talin; baith meanin "lawer Talin") is a veelage locatit in the Aragatsotn Province o Armenie. The veelage conteens the lairge Dashtadem Fortress datin tae the 10t hunderyear but substantially rebuilt in the 19t hunderyear, alang wi a chapel dedicatit tae Saunt Sargis datin tae the 10t hunderyear an aw. The fortress keep haes a Arabic dedicatory inscription o 1174, written in Kufic script attributin the structur tae Sultan ibn Mahmud (Shahanshah), ane o the Shaddadids. Past the veelage tae the north juist east o the road tae Talin, an a few hunder meters afore the electric substation (sooth), are the ruins o a lairge medieval caravanserai. Lairge sections o waws remain staundin an the oweraw plan is still easily distinguished amangst the ruins. The remains o Stane Age obsidian wirkshops can be foond on a hill tae the wast. In a cemetery sooth o Dashtadem, lees the restored 7t-hunderyear Kristapori Vank.[1] [2]
