The English Church

In the heart of Tcherbevan's Armenian Quarter stands the "English Church".  It was built to serve the spiritual needs of British merchants in the 18th century.  Now it forms a sanctuary for many of the foreigners trapped in Tcherbevan by the fighting.



Of course as soon as she saw it my former-archaeologist wife pointed out that the graves should all be oriented east west in line with the church itself.  I can only suggest that the gravestone near the front gate has been moved to make way for some past development.

It's a historic landmark in the Armenian Quarter. Why would you want to burn it?
