Historic Armenian church up for sale in Turkey


18 January 2021, 12:29 - NovostiNK
An Armenian Catholic church in the Turkish city of Bursa has been put up for sale, Turkish-Armenian lawmaker Garo Paylan said in a Facebook post on Sunday, January 18.

"The Armenian Church of Bursa is up for sale. Is a place of worship for sale? How can the society and the state allow such a thing? Shame on you!" Paylan captured a screenshot containing the photo of the Armenian church.

According to the online ad, the church is priced at 6 million Turkish liras (approximately $800,000).

A 300 year-old Armenian Church in Bursa was put up for sale for $1.5 million on an online shopping platform in 2016. It is not entirely clear whether the two are the same, but both ads were published by a real estate agent.
