Overview

” ANI IS THE WORLD,BUT THE WORLD HAS NOT BEEN A  ANI ” ,SAYS HISTORY

Spectacular mosques, rustic Armenian churches and towering stone castles reward those willing to get off the beaten path.

Ani lies east of Kars and along the Arpaçay (Akhuryan) River, which forms the border with Armenia to the east.

It remained the chief city of Armenia until Mongol raids in the 13th century and a devastating earthquake in 1319 sent it into an irreparable decline.

The proximity of this ghost town to the border, places some restrictions on visitors, but the ruins of the mosques and numerous churches, together with the cathedral and the citadel, all inside city walls, are really worth seeing.
