The only Armenian Church in Kars, Cathedral of Saint Apostles, was
reconstructed with grave mistakes, said Samvel Karapetyan, chairman of
Era NGO dealing with protection of cultural and historical monuments.
"After the reconstruction, the church resembles an ornamental
building. Nothing Armenian was preserved. Once used as a museum and
storehouse, the Church is now operating as a mosque," Karapetyan told
reporters Wednesday, Novosti Armenia reports.
