Noah’s Ark According to religious texts, Noah's Ark is said to have rested at Ağrı Mountain after the flood. Today, it is believed that the Ark is stranded 3.5 km away from the Turkish-Iranian transit road, located south of Ağrı Mountain between Telçeker Village and Mesar Village. The areas known as Noah's Lost City and Trail of Noah's Ark are also considered possible locations of this sacred narrative. The notion of the Ark settling on a mountain has been around for centuries, with the first mention occurring in 1876 when Armenian priests from Iran informed visitors to Ağrı that the Ark had landed there and could be seen from Akdamar Island. More recently, in 1979, an Iranian visitor noted similarities between Azerbaijan's Shamkhor Valley and ancient Tabriz, prompting speculation about the story's veracity. However, it wasn't until 1987 when a geologist working with natural gas exploration crews noticed scattered stones on the side of Turkmenbashy Mountains. After reporting his findings to a Turkish archaeologist from the local archaeological museum, they both visited the site together. Several petrified wood pieces have been found on the slopes of Mount Ararat, with over 100 discovered in different locations believed to be part of Noah's Ark. However, despite this discovery, archaeologists cannot confirm with certainty that this is where the Ark finally came to rest. It's possible that other locations along its route, such as Turkmenbashy Mountain or Mount Suleiman, could have similar geological features, both of which contain evidence of ancient forests. Some people believe that Noah's Ark landed on these mountains, but the evidence supporting these theories is circumstantial. The prevailing theory is that Noah's Ark landed on Mount Ararat. While the collected evidence suggests a connection with Noah's Ark, the final destination has not been confirmed, and historians and archaeologists continue to search for more conclusive proof.
