Akdamar Island, Turkey and Cathedral Church of the Holy Cross

I just love this view; it looks all so calm and peaceful.  Akdamar Island is located in Lake Van in Eastern Anatolia, Turkey. There is an Armenian cathedral,  known as the Cathedral Church of the Holy Cross, formerly the seat of an Armenian Catholicos (1116 - 1985). After being vandalized for a good while, restoration began in May 2005 and on March 29, 2007 it was reopened as a museum.
The card was sent by Kate (siguanea) for the Postcrossing Favourites Tag.
