Remains of Armenian fortress emerge as lake water level dips in Turkey

Remains of an ancient Armenian fortress have emerged due to declining water level in Lake Van, Ermenihaber.am reports.

The fortress used to be part of the city of Old Archesh, which was gradually abandoned and went underwater due to the rising water level of Lake Van.

years ago, when the water level dropped due to the drought, the "sunken city" emerged once again, but many of its buildings were seriously damaged in the 2011 earthquake of Van.

The building is now visible again, and according to researcher Selahattin Kosar, a section of the fortress will be restored to become a tourist center.

The fortress was built in the Kingdom of Van.
