Akdamar Island - 4K

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor jesus_tr created this amazing drone video of one of the top attractions of eastern Turkey: Lake Van's Akdamar Island.  It's the second-largest of the four islands of Turkey's largest lake.  Located about 3 km (around 2 mi.) from the shoreline, the island is best known for its famous church, the Cathedral of the Holy Cross.  This Armenian church was built in the 10th century AD.  Recently restored, the church was once one of the most important in the Armenian branch of Christianity.
