Yakubiye

Do You Want To Light Candles?Yakubiye is an old Armenian village, where Armenians lived here since 1000 years. The population has shrinked and a lot of them migrated to Armenia, in 20-th century. Still there are people who stay in ancestors’ lands, in beautiful olive yards, and enjoying the magnicficent old church of St. Anna. Pilgrims come here in summer, in a day called “St. Anna’s Day”, who celebrate the commemoration of her.
