Surp Khach church of Akhtamar Island will be opened on November 4,
Lraber newspaper of the Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople quoted
owner of the reconstructing company Cahit Zeidalan as saying. He said
that the reconstruction works ended on August 30 and currently the
church’s surroundings are being refurbished. He also said that prime
minister Erdogan had attached high importance to the reconstruction,
and most likely the opening will take place on November 4.

Zeidalan considers the reconstruction work to be of high quality
and exemplary for the world. Yet, it’s clear from the above picture
that the constructors have "forgotten" fix crosses on the dome and
on the chapel.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
