Armenian inscriptions mention that the colorful tiles used in Jerusalem’s St. Hakobyants monastery are from Komitas’ homeland Kutahya. When conquering Jerusalem, the Egyptian sultan confused the monastery with a mosque and prostrated himself in prayer. Finding out the reality, he ordered the monastery to be destroyed. Knowing about his decision, Armenian monks convinced him only to remove the dome and seal the door. In this design, were used pieces of porcelain from Jerusalem’s St. Hakobyans monastery and fragments from “Urbatagirk” (The Book of Friday).
