One more Armenian church will be restored at Western Armenian territory

Yesterday Turkish minister of culture and tourism presented money to start restoration of the Malatian Tashkhoran and Vank village churches.

Armenian Church in Malatia is in the same community where Armenian-Turkish journalist Hrant Dink was born. The church is 250 years old.

According to Marmara magazine the program of restoration is confirmed and the money is already presented from the state budget. The restoration is supposed to be ended on 2013.  

According to the source the church was ignored for years and the main part of the church is destroyed and the written words on the church are not readable any more.

 Note that this not the first time Armenian Churches are restored in Western Armenian territory which is currently under Turkish supervision.
