Ancient Water Canal In Turkey (3000 Years Old)


Among the many historical treasures of Eastern Turkey is the Shamiram Canal, which was once also known as the Menua Canal.  Located a short distance to the east of the provincial capital Van, the canal predates the Roman aquaducts by centuries.  It was constructed in the 8th century BC on the orders of the king of Uartu, an ancient kingdom in what is now the region of Eastern Anatolia.  Content creator and drone pilot Skaty brings us this marvelous aerial view of this marvel of early hydro-engineering.
