The villagers left for North Cyprus soon after the Turkish invasion, with half leaving immediately and the rest in 1975 under United Nations escort.

The village has no residents anymore and the houses have fallen into disrepair, with many of them now ruins. There are a few shepherds that use some of the homes to shelter their livestock.
