Kanaker, St. James Church
The St. Hakob Church was built at the end of the XVII century at the site of the church, which was destroyed by the earthquake of 1679. The St. Hakob Church was reconstructed by the donation of Hakobjan, a wealthy resident of Tiflis. The Diocesan School named after St. Sahak Partev and conducted by Mesrop Archimandrite Smbatyants functioned at the church since 1868.
In the God-denying years the church was locked and served as a storehouse. Later on, the St. Hakob Church was fundamentally restored by the government and began functioning in 1990.
