The relics of the Batak martyrs have been returned to the Plovdov bishopric of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. The remains had previously been in custody of the town council in Batak.

From the article:
Quote
With an earlier decision, the Batak Town Hall bestowed to the bishopric the "St. Nedeliya" church where the relics are kept in a special sarcophagus. The Church was a historical site, but is now also a place where mass can be served.

The Bulgarian Holy Synod made the decision to canonize the Batak martyrs in April, 2011.
