Armenians from all over the world had a chance to visit historic sites and touristic attractions in the eastern province of Van on Saturday, one day before an annual ritual takes place at the Armenian Church on the Akdamar Island in Lake Van.

Most of the hotels in Van have been fully booked and occupied by Armenians who have arrived to attend Sunday's ritual which will take place for the third time after a permission was issued by the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
A 35-member Armenian delegation led by the Chairman of the Armenian Businessmen's Association of Germany, Murat Akyuz went to the Basbulak district of Van and had a chance to drink natural water at the site.

Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), Akyuz said that they joined in the annual ritual at Akdamar Island for three years in a row and came to the city with different delegations every time.

"We visited downtown Van and surrounding towns. We came to Basbulak district to taste the water that our ancestors drank," Akyuz also said.
