Greek Holy church in Turkey left to ruin (PICS)

Disturbing images have surfaced from Turkey, showing a historical Greek church that has been neglected and left to ruin.

The once sacred and holy site now has cattle roaming through, using it as a stable and toilet.

Today, Turkey has a very small Greek population, most of whom are Greek Orthodox Christians. Greek Orthodox Christianity was one of three main groups under the Ottoman Empire, along with Armenian and Assyrian Christians.

Like the Armenians, the Greeks suffered massacres and expulsions from Constantinople, leading up to and during WWI, and many more were removed to Greece.

The Greek Orthodox population in Turkey has declined to only around 2,000- 3,000.

  1. Please note and correct. This is an Armenian Church, just look at the stone inscriptions. A Greek church would hardly use Armenian writing!!!!!!
