Drone footage of an Armenian Church on Akdamar island on the lake Van in Eastern Turkey.


Check out this stunning drone videos from one of the most iconic sites in eastern Turkey, compliments of contributor and pilot Spyd7r.  It's a 10th century Armenian church called the Holy Cross Cathedral.  It's situated on Akdamar, one of the islands of Lake Van, Turkey's largest lake.  For nearly eight centuries, it was the seat of the Armenian Apostolic Church, the national church of the Armenian people.  It fell into disuse after World War I but was "rediscovered" in the 1950's and extensively restored.
