Fevkani Church turned into ruin due to lack of care

The Armenian Church, which was recently restored by the Regional Directorate of Foundations in 2011, became unusable. The uninhabited Fevkani Church returned into children’s playground.

The Fevkani Church, which is thought to have been built during the Byzantine period in 6thor 7thcentury, was abandoned to its fate. After the restoration work of the General Directorate of Foundations in 2011, the church’s walls were painted with spray paint, the glasses are broken and herbs began to appear on the roof. After the restoration, it has returned to ruin.

The church, which was previously used by the Armenians living in Nizip, is now being used out of its purpose. Thanks to its strong structure, the garden of the church has become the ball court of Syrian children who are settled in Nizip .

 According to the news of the MEZ Agency, after the church was restored in 2011 by the Regional Directorate of Foundations of Antep, the Fevkani Church was first transferred to the Nizip District Governorship Service Delivery Union and later to the Nizip Disability Association by the Nizip District Governorate. Although it was transferred to the association for active use of the church building, it was left unattended by the association for a short period of time.

The church is supposed to have been built during the Byzantine period in the 6th or 7th centuries. The apse of the church is rectangular and half-rounded. It has not have an inscription and is considered to be much older than the Church of St. Cross on the Island of Ahtamar. Lastly, the icons of the saints which were in the interior of the building have disappeared.
