Armenians from around the world flocked to Surp Giragos on Oct. 22, 2011, to attend both the consecration of the largest Armenian Church in the Middle East and the Badarak held the following day. The church had been recently renovated by the Surp Giragos Armenian Foundation, with the support of the local Kurdish-controlled municipality of the time.
During the past two tumultuous years, the church has been desecrated and largely damaged, as the photographs show.
These photos were captured by a Diyarbakir resident and sent to the Armenian Weekly on condition of anonymity.
