An ancient castle has been found under Lake Van


Researchers have been searching Lake Van, the second largest lake in Turkey with an area of 3,555 kilometres squared, for a decade and have finally found what they are looking for.

The castle is still relatively in tact and has standing walls as high as three or four metres.

It is believed to be an Iron Age relic of the Urartu civilisation, also called the Kingdom of Van, which lived in the area from the 9th to 6th century BC.

The discovery was made by archaeologists from the Van Yüzüncü Yıl University and a team of divers.

Tahsin Ceylan, head of the diving team on the project, had been searching for the Lake Van Monster – a legendary beast supposedly similar to the Loch Ness Monster – when he found the castle.

Mr Ceylan told the Daily Sabah: "There was a rumour that there might be something under the water but most archaeologists and museum officials told us that we won't find anything.”

The water levels of the lake have fluctuated wildly over the past few thousand years, and before it was full as it is today, researchers say there was likely a thriving civilisation there.

Mr Ceylan told the Hurriyet Daily News: "Many civilisations and people had settled around Lake Van.

"They named the lake the 'upper sea' and believed it had 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. Archaeologists will come here to examine the castle's history and provide information on it.

Atlantis was first written about by Geek philosopher Plato in 350 BC who detailed a mysterious island that seemingly just vanished.

Some believe that Santorini, one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea, is the lost city of Atlantis, where a huge volcanic eruption wiped out the Minoan culture – an ancient civilisation that flourished between 3650 to 1400 BC.
