Destroyed Armenian church will be rebuilt in Ankara

To permit the building of a new military hospital in Ankara, Turkey’s Culture and Tourism Ministry required that the Armenian Vank Church, which was completely destroyed at the turn of the 20th Century, be constructed at the given area.

The Ministry noted that the Vank Church, which was built in 1759 and which functioned until the 1900s, was located in that area. And even though no remains of the church were preserved there, the Ministry cited the “Ankara” painting, which is kept in an Amsterdam museum, in which the Vank Church is depicted, Haberturk of Turkey reported.
