Le site  «  Nous avons grandi ensemble » (Beraber Büyüdük Bu Ülkede) dont le titre rappelle  une chanson populaire (Beraber Yürüldük bu Yollar) chantée en public par le premier ministre Recep Tayyip Erdogan  est destiné à recueillir les signatures de la pétition qu?ils ont initiée  (près de 15000 signatures à ce jour) . Il est uniquement en turc, mais je conseille  même à  ceux qui ne comprennent pas cette langue de le visiter.  On y trouve  de superbes images du monastère.
