St. Minas Church, built by Armenians in 1790 in Karin, Western Armenia, is in the middle of an urban reform program. The point is that the city authorities can not make reforms in the mentioned area without the permission of the owner. The mayor, noting that the owner of the church lives in Germany, particularly mentiones. “The owner of the church does not accept any compromise. He does not allow us to rebuild, he does not rebuild either. ” The owner wanted the church to remain in a half-destroyed state.

The problematic church has become a frequent meeting place for thieves and drug addicts. The church, all parts of which have been destroyed by treasure hunters, somehow survives.
