finding out why constantinople got the works

ancient ani

Posted in turkey by jlm2dy on March 8, 2011

on the armenian – turkish border, this HUGE ancient site has seen mongolian destruction, earthquakes and lightening strikes. we spent 4 hours hiking through the snow to climb around the ruins.

left side: armenian church in turkey. right side: kapadokya style fairy chimneys in armenia.

on the left side of this apse, we found a tunnel that brought us 30 feet up and gave us a top-down view of the church from the side of the dome

the hikers! az-kar, emii, değil and cordin
