The restoration is beautiful enough, but the real wonder is the story behind the restoration: how a group of local people confronted history and determined to bend the "moral arc of history". The site includes a small museum, a cafe and a helpful staff. ]

Visited the Church while with a small tour group visiting central and eastern Turkey. The restoration is being done in a fairly professional manner. Small café generates some income and those I talked to said the food was good. What I found interesting was that...More
