Akhtamar Island registers record number of tourists


August 20, 2013 | 00:04? 

Akhtamar Island in Turkey famous for its Armenian church registered a record number of tourists in Jan.-July 2013.

The Ministry of Culture and Tourism said 21,388 tourists visited the island in the mentioned period.

The major flow of tourists falls on the second Sunday of September when a liturgy is held at Surb Khach Armenian church.

The first ceremony after a 95-year break was held in the Armenian church on September 11, 2010. The ceremony brought many tourists to Turkey's Van province which resulted in Turkish authorities' decision to continue with the upkeep and the expanding of the lighting grid at Akhtamar Island of Van Province. ? ?
