Ancient Ruins of Ani
Ani was an Armen­ian city that rests on the the Turk­ish side of the bor­der. It was once one of the largest cities in the world with a pop­u­la­tion of 100,000. Nick­named “The city of forty gates” and “The city of a thou­sand and one churches”, Today it is com­pletely aban­doned and all but a half dozen or so churches remain.
