There is solely one sign in Turkey where “Armenian Kingdom” is written. The sign on the wall of the Surp Boğos (St. Paul) Church, which was built during the reign of the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia and which has been turned into a mosque in Tarsus (Tarson, in Armenian), Turkey, reads, in Turkish and English, that the church was built in the 11th century, during the reign of the Armenian Kingdom, by King Oshin.
This is a unique sign because “Armenian,” or “Armenia,” is not noted at any historical and cultural monuments in Turkey. And “Armenian church” was added on the sign at the Holy Cross Armenian church on Akhtamar Island on Lake Van, only in 2015.
