There is a huge debate going on the past hours regarding what archeologists just discovered. It seems that under a huge Lake in Turkey, lies a lost city. That’s what they saw when they attempted to into those deep dark waters. Ruins of a 3,000 year old castle. Atlantis found? 

Atlantis Found? 

Although Atlantis is believed to be under the Waters of an Ocean probably west of Turkey according to Plato, God knows how this lake has been made. 

As reported to Hurriyet Daily News, Mr Tahsin Ceylan, head of the diving team on the project: ‘Many civilisations and people had settled around Lake Van. They named the lake the “upper sea” and believed it hid many mysterious things. With this belief in mind, we are working to reveal the lake’s secrets. It is a miracle to find this castle underwater.”

 

A devilish monster living in the Ancient Lake?

But how did all this begun? This story might be much more peculiar. Professional divers were exploring Lake Van and searching for a reported monster similar to the legendary Scottish ‘Lock Ness’.  Underwater photographers, divers and academics joined forces to unravel the secrets of the ‘Upper Sea’ as this Lake is named.

So far though, they did not see the Turkish cousin of Nessy but they did discover a lost city which amazed all academic society. Mr Ceylan believes that the castle probably belonged to the Urartian civilisation judging from the castle’s stone structure resemblance. 

Urartu was an ancient civilization located in the mountains between the Caspian and the Black Sea.

Legends Came true!

Once again, what people used to say as legends came out to be more than true! There are rumours of legendary creatures, monsters and ancient people involving this dark lake. Who knows… maybe we have so much more to see!!
