Ani, the city of a thousand and one churches
Via The Atlantic In Focus
Ani, a sad but beautiful reminder of the History of the Armenian Apostolic Church. The city once rivalled Baghdad and Constantinople in its beauty and was marveled on by Byzantines and Turks who presented themselves at the homes of the Armenian King and Bishop of the city. Now it lies in ruins, leaving the skeletons of Churches which were once filled by the people of the World’s oldest Christian nation.
