In 1959 a Turkish Airline Pilot took photos of a boat shaped structure on the top of mountain Ararat for the geodetic institute of turkey. The boat measures approximately 300 cubits which is stated as the length of Noah’s ark in the book of Genesis 6:15

This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high.

However the width of the boat was greater than the size specified in the bible which might have been due to natural expansion over the period of years. Also it rests on the mountain Arafat which matches the biblical account in the book of Genesis 8:4

In the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat.

Scientific examination on the boat found an organic fossilized antler, extinct rodent hair, fossilized animal droppings and human hair inside the boat which makes this case even stronger. The Turkish government has officially dedicated the site as national park declaring it to be the remains of Noah’s ark. Read the entire Documentation of Noah Ark.
