Did anyone find Prophet Noah Ship?
There have been many claims by different researchers that the remains of the ship of Prophet Noah عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ have been found in either Mount Ararat or Mount Judi.
However, in 2020, the Institute for Creation Research acknowledged that, despite many expeditions, Prophet Noah’s Ark had not been found and is unlikely to be found.
