Turkey to restore St. Gevorg Armenian Church

The Turkish authorities have made a decision to renovate the St. Gevorg Church in Canakci village in Kigi district of Bingöl Province, reports, quoting Turkish sources.

A written statement by the Governor’s Office in Bingöl says the Church will be restored in a short time, according to the decision of the Erzurum Regional Council for Conservation of Cultural and Natural Heritage.

The 250-year-old St. Gevorg Armenian Church is nearly ruined. The head of Canakci village had earlier informed the governor that the church could cause damage to the neighboring buildings if not restored.
