1,800-year-old Greek Orthodox church faces risk of collapse

A 1,800-year-old GreekOrthodox Church and its monastery situated on the Kameriye (Kamelya) Island in the Aegean Sea, just off the Aegean province of Muğla’s Marmaris district, is facing risk of collapse despite being a popular spot for tourists. 

Restoration plans for the church and its monastery were prepared in 2013 with the aim of creating an alternative destination especially for faith tourism. The site also draws interest from GreekOrthodox believers, some of whom want to perform their marriage ceremonies at the church they deem holy.

But the restoration works have still not begun due to bureaucratic obstacles, Mehmet Baysal, chairman of the Marmaris Chamber of Commerce, told Doğan News Agency.
