This article is a fraud[edit]

Anyone with even just a superficial knowledge of Byzantine and Armenia architecture will tell you that these supposed Armenian churches are actually early Byzantine, from the same era as those at Madenşehri / Binbirkilise. Maybe the name "Akner monastery" exists and was once applied to a real Armenian site, but this place is not it. The photographs used are also stolen from other sources. They were initially stolen from a flickr account by a racist Armenian living in Iran called "Arthur_G_78" and placed on Panoramio and Google Earth. Under another name, "Event_Horizon.000", they were later uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. Meowy 17:18, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

BTW, based on his picture uploads to Wikimedia Commons, "Event_horizon.000" is also "Tzir-Katin". Meowy 17:32, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

According to T.S.R. Bourse's Cilician Kingdon of Armenia a convent of "Agner" or "Aguener" was located near Partzapert according to Alishan. Partzapert (or Partrspert or Barsbirt) was a castle held by Toros I and was located about two days journey north of [Sis]. A medieval chroniclerdescribes it as "strong citadel on a high mountain, where the King of Armenia keeps his treasure and pasesthe summer". Alishan places it in the Zamanti valley.
