The Armenian Church of Saints Peter and Paul, located in the Tomarza district of Kayseri province in central Turkey, continues to be under threat of collapse.
According to “Ermenihaber,” in particular, the roof of the church building is cracked, there are broken fragments, and there are torn-off pieces of plaster on the pillars and lower parts of the church.
"The church, which once served as a warehouse and then a movie theater for the people, is now abandoned. Our greatest wish is for the church, which has lost its epitaph, to be restored and also to become an attraction for tourism. There are traces of frescoes from that period on the walls. The church, now a pigeon's nest, is in danger of collapse due to indifference and neglect. This church in Tomarz is a must-see for lovers of local and foreign history. We hope the church will be rebuilt before it collapses," one Tomarza resident said of the church.
