An Abandoned Cathedral In Ani, Turkey

Abandoned Cathedral Ani Turkey

What might seem to you as just another abandoned area was once the pinnacle of civilization. A rival of Constantinople, Baghdad and Damascus at its height, natural disaster struck in the form of a 1319 earthquake and the now-Turkish city of Ani has since been abandoned. While it stood, though, the Armenian capital city stretched throughout present day Armenia and eastern Turkey.
