Recently, Turkish newlywed couples have been more often photographed on the ruins of Ani. Newlyweds are taking wedding photos in front of the churches of Ani and other architectural monuments. Photos taken at sunset are especially popular.
This was reported by the Turkish state news agency “Anadolu” whose correspondent photographer Ismail Kaplan captured several of these couples. “Anadolu” mentions that Ani, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, is called the “Cradle of Civilizations” but does not specify that Ani is one of the ancient capitals of Armenia.
